DEMOCRAT RUNS ON OPEN BORDERS: Texas Democrat Beto O’Rourke Calls for Legalizing Unauthorized Border Crossings

The liberal mainstream media squealed with delight last week when they announced Ted Cruz was only 4 points ahead of Democrat Beto O’Rourke.

The the bottom dropped out on Beto’s campaign.

First O’Rourke told a liberal Texas crowd that there was nothing more American than kneeling for the National Anthem.
(He forgot he was in Texas and not at a Hollywood fundraiser!)

Now this…
Beto O’Rourke is now pushing to legalize unauthorized border crossers into America.

The Washington Examiner reported:

A trio of Democrats running for top offices in Texas want to decriminalize unauthorized border crossings.

U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke, who’s challenging Republican Sen. Ted Cruz for his Senate seat, gubernatorial candidate Lupe Valdez, and congressional candidate Veronica Escobar told HuffPost they are in favor of such a move, which the report says would be simpler to implement than abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement, as some Democrats have demanded.

Decriminalizing unauthorized border crossings would go against the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy that led to family separations at the border. The Department of Homeland Security would still be able to charge unauthorized immigrants with civil violations, the report notes, but it would save the federal government billions in incarceration costs.
