Caitlyn Jenner appeared on Hannity Wednesday night where she made her case to be the next governor of California. Jenner announced late last month that she plans to run for governor in the upcoming recall election. While much of the interview lacked specifics, Jenner made clear where she stands on immigration, and former President Donald Trump’s border wall.

Asked if she would continue building the border wall, Jenner replied, “I am all for the wall. I would secure the wall. We can’t have a state, we can’t have a country without a secure wall.” She later added, “What do we do with the people that are here? We are a compassionate country, okay? We are a compassionate state. Some help — I mean, some people, we’re going to send back, okay? No question about that.”

Though Jenner also expressed interest in eliminating California's sanctuary status, the law has already held up against multiple challenges on the federal level. The Supreme Court declined to even hear a challenge brought by the Trump administration last year.

When Sean Hannity asked if she’d eliminate the sanctuary status of the state, Jenner responded, “I would do my absolute best to do that. It's not going to be easy. But I would do my absolute best. I am for securing this state. I am pro-law enforcement. I am pro-border protection, okay? I.C.E., pro-I.C.E. We need these people, and they do a wonderful job.”
