“Ahora mismo estamos gastando miles de millones en un tren de alta velocidad que no va a ninguna parte,” Jenner le dijo KABC, refiriéndose al proyecto de un tren bala de muchos años de California. “Toma algo de ese dinero, go down to the border wall and completely finish on state land,” Jenner said. “Completely finish the wall. We need protection.”
Ella añadió: “Pero, for those hardworking great people that are here, I want them to be able to get legal status.”
Jenner, a reality television star, businesswoman, and gold medalist, discussed immigration in an interview this week saying the wall, Trump’s paramount 2016 campaign promise, should be finished.
El mes pasado, Jenner said she “fuertemente” supports the border wall, and said as governor she would end California’s status as a “sanctuary state,” and work to fix a “broken immigration system.
“I would see to it that violent illegal criminals are DEPORTED IMMEDIATELY,” Jenner said in an email to supporters last month.
Jenner also told Fox News’ Sean Hannity last month she is “all for the wall.”
“I am all for the wall, I would secure the wall. We can’t have a state, we can’t have a country, without a secure wall,” ella dijo.
Jenner also seemed to support undocumented immigrants living in the country.
“You have two questions here,” ella dijo. “One is stopping people from coming in illegally into the state. And then the second question is, what do we do with the people that are here? We are a compassionate country, okey? We are a compassionate state.”
“quiero decir, some people we’re going to send back, OK, no question about that,” ella añadió. “But I have met some of the greatest immigrants into our country.”
Presidente Biden, upon taking office, stopped construction of the wall along the U.S.-Mexico Border; but in April, the Department of Homeland Security said it is working to fix what it described as “dangerous erosion” along a 14-mile stretch of border wall construction in California.
DHS specified that it is working to “remediate dangerous soil erosion” FOX5 San Diego, which it looped in as part of a number of measures to address the damage that it blamed on the prior administration’s wall construction.
“Improper compaction of soil and construction materials along a wall segment constructed by the prior administration is causing dangerous erosion along a 14-mile stretch in San Diego, California,” it said in an abril 30 declaración. “DHS will begin necessary backfill projects to ensure the safety of nearby border communities.”
mientras tanto, Gobernador de California. Gavin Newsom, un demócrata, has sought to tie Jenner to Trump— but she said this week that she didn’t vote for the former commander-in-chief during the 2020 elecciones presidenciales.
“He did some really good things with the economy for this state, international. He did some good things,” Jenner said. “His messaging was terrible.”
“I feel like I’m the face of the Republican Party for the future,” Jenner said. “I want to bring the Republican Party to me and be more inclusive.”
