Vice President Kamala Harris and her husband, second gentleman Doug Emhoff, made an appearance Saturday at the Pride parade in downtown Washington, D.C.

“We need to pass the Equality Act,” Harris said. “We need to make sure that our transgender community and our youth are all protected. We need still protections around employment and housing.”

“There is so much more work to do and I know we are committed and we understand the importance of this movement and our roles of leadership in this ongoing movement,” Harris added. “So happy Pride, everyone.”

During Harris’s time at the downtown Pride parade, one unidentified individual asked her when she would visit the border, a question she has faced numerous times over the last few months but has not fully answered.

“When are you going to the border,” the individual shouted as Harris walked down the street and entered a vehicle to quickly escape the crowd and questions.

“At some point, you know, we are going to the border,” Harris told Holt. “We’ve been to the border. So this whole … thing about the border. We’ve been to the border. We’ve been to the border.”
“You haven’t been to the border,” Holt responded.
“And I haven’t been to Europe,” Harris said as she laughed. “And I mean, I don’t understand the point that you’re making. I’m not discounting the importance of the border.”
