Joe Biden’s Nominee for Attorney General of the United States, Merrick Garland who is a 24-year judge and former nominee for the Supreme Court of the United States refused to give a clear answer to whether or not illegal entry into the U.S. should remain illegal. Below is the clip.

At Judge Garland’s nominee hearing for Attorney General today, Missouri Senator Josh Hawley (R) asked, “Do you believe that illegal entry at America’s border should remain a crime?” Garland responded by ultimately dodging the question asked.
He stated, “I just haven’t thought about that question… I don’t know of a proposal to decriminalize but still make it unlawful to enter. I just don’t know the answer to that question.”
He later said it is a question of allocation of resources. He went off-topic from the original question like many other nominees do who are going through the Senate confirmation process.
Garland refused to answer a number of questions concerning ‘big tech’ censorship and law and order while also vowing to prosecute those who stormed the Capital on January 6th.
It will be interesting to see if the once moderate Judge will be confirmed in the 50-50 Senate split as Attorney General now that he seems to have taken on more leftist views.
