A Northern Arizona University student grilled Vice President Kamala Harris on the Biden administration’s border policy during an event Tuesday.

“I was studying a bit about (your remarks) a couple of the campuses that you’ve visited, and one thing that stayed consistent was to ‘never silence our voices,'” student Jonathan Otero said. “I want you as well to honor that today.”

The crowd could be heard cheering.

“This administration has continued to deport children and their families while simultaneously building a wall,” Otero said. “Children continue to die at the wall because of this country’s inhumane policies, much like the crimes committed, and funded, against those in Palestine.”

The crowd immediately burst out into loud cheers. (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: GOP Reps Introduce Bill Redirecting Funds From Housing Illegal Migrants To Bringing Americans Home From Israel)

Harris told the students the administration has tried to create legislation to create a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants and said “Republicans in Congress have purposely not picked it up.”

Harris then tried to answer the student about the U.S.’ stance on Israel, noting Israel is a strong ally with the right to self-defense but that the administration was working with their Israeli counterparts to avoid any human rights violations.

One student could be heard screaming “Stop making bombs.”

A recent CNN poll found that just 27% of people between the ages of 18-34 say that Israel’s response to the Hamas attack is fully justified. Meanwhile, a YouGov poll found that only 38% of adults under 45 believe Hamas’ attacks on civilians are deliberate.
