Senator Fetterman Calls for Comprehensive Immigration Solution and Expresses Support for Israel

Sen. John Fetterman took a stand against his own party in a CNN interview where he talked in detail about the issues at the border and his stance on the Israel – Hamas conflict. He questioned why his fellow Democrats did not show enough empathy for the border crisis.

Alignment With Israel

In addition, Fetterman talked about how he supports Israel even though he disagrees with some progressive viewpoints. “I honestly don’t understand why it’s controversial to say we need a secure border,” Fetterman said.

Weaponized By Republicans

“I’ve been very clear. In fact, that was weaponized against me as Republicans in my race that I’m very much strong a supporter of immigration and my wife’s family,” he said.

Two Things Can Go Together

He added, “And I think two things can be true at the same time: You can be very supportive of immigration, but we also need to have a secure border. And I really — I think about immigration is, we want to provide the American dream for any migrant, but it seems very difficult when you have 300,000 people showing up, encountered at our border to do that.”

Fetterman continued, “I think we need to do a reset, and we have to work together and develop a new comprehensive solution to that.”

He also rebutted Democrat criticism, “I honestly don’t understand. I don’t understand why it’s controversial to anybody to decide that you’re going to stand with Israel in this situation.”

Israel A Special Ally

But he went back to his point with “I do believe that that doesn’t change the fact that Israel is our special ally. And we had that kind of relationship.”

Fetterman gave an explanation for why he stopped identifying as a progressive and started to identify more as a Democrat. “It’s not so much that I left the title, the title left me,” he said.

How Progressive Stances Shifted

He continued, “Increasingly, [progressives] moved and migrated into some positions that I don’t agree with, and I really just feel much more comfortable just being a Democrat.”

Impact of Border Crisis and Hamas Massacre

He emphasized the importance of having a safe border and talked about how the Hamas massacre affected him personally, which changed his viewpoint. “There is a crisis,” he said. “We have a crisis at our border, and it can’t be controversial that we should have a secure border.”

Israel’s Progressiveness and Liberalism

He added that Israel “is most reflective of the kinds of open, progressive, liberal policies, and it’s a strange paradox where the most progressive members of our party seem to not recognize that Israel is a nation that supports those values.”

What If?

He continued, adding a personal angle, “I get emotional thinking about it. What if that was my children? What if that was my wife? Where does that kind of evil come from? I don’t know where the next bottom is … Those kinds of atrocities must never be allowed to survive and endure. It has to be destroyed.”
