Beto O’Rourke claims that fences don’t save lives. they cost lives. But there are two key arguments you won’t hear him talk about. One is that Beto used fencing and barricades to protect him at himself in El Paso and two that people aren’t dying at the fences.
People die in the desert while trying to get to the border. Beto failed miserably against Ted Cruz in the last election and that was with 58,000 illegals voting, like the ones carrying Mexican flags at the Beto rally.
What makes anyone think he will make a good presidential candidate is probably the same ones who bet their family fortunes on 8-track players.
While railing against border walls at his El Paso, Texas, rally on Monday evening, Rep. Beto O’Rourke stood safely on a stage that walled off supporters behind barriers, fences, and barricades.
“Walls do not save lives. Walls end lives,” O’Rourke said at his pro-open borders rally in El Paso that dueled with President Trump’s rally blocks away.
“In the last ten years, more than 4,000 children, woman, and men, have died trying to come to this country to work jobs that no one will take, to be with a family member, to flee horrific brutality, violence, and death in their home countries,” O’Rourke said, falsely claiming that Americans are unwilling to take blue-collar U.S. jobs.
O’Rourke railed against border walls at the U.S.-Mexico border while enjoying personal security at his rally. Located at the Chalio Acosta Sports Center in El Paso, O’Rourke’s rally came with baseball field fences — already on the property and not placed there by O’Rourke’s staff — that walled off onlookers and kept the congressman’s stage secure from the back.
