He's a 'Problem for the Whole Country': CA Gov. Swipes at Pence Over Border Comment
California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) took a swipe at Vice President Mike Pence Tuesday after he was told Pence criticized the ongoing issues at the U.S.-Mexico border in California.
The vice president was in the Golden State on Tuesday touring a border fence construction project and said that open border advocates were exploiting migrants in the caravan at the border.
"The vice president said [Monday] that the border is a problem in that particular area for the whole country," a reporter said to Brown.
Brown replied, "I think Pence is a problem for the whole country."
Katie Pavlich reacted to Brown's remark Wednesday on "Outnumbered."
"Last time I checked, Mike Pence is not an MS-13 member," Pavlich said, referencing the illegal immigrant gang associated with a spate of violent murders across the country.
Pavlich said the migrants went to California because they know that Brown has "sympathy" for them and because of California's sanctuary laws.
Rep. Mike McCaul (R-Texas), chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security, said on "Your World with Neil Cavuto" Tuesday that he filed a bill that would raise the threshold for those immigrants seeking asylum in the United States.
"Right now, the standard is very low. They know that. And to get around that, the cartels teach them these magic words. And once they say that, they are allowed under current law to stay in the United States," McCaul said.

Pete Hegseth said that he agrees with McCaul's proposal, saying that the caravan has brought attention to the loopholes in the immigration system.
"The asylum process [is] a massive loophole that anyone can claim and [it] takes time to review," he said.
