Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke traveled south of the U.S. border on Sunday to virtue-signal and score a photo op using the national emergency to score political points.
O’Rourke met with third-world migrants in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico who were “turned away” when attempting to come into the U.S. and gain asylum. The fledgling presidential hopeful wanted to highlight their plight while improving his social justice bona fides at the same time.
The campaign claims the purpose of O’Rourke’s trip was to “shed light on the desperate circumstances those who are seeking asylum and refuge are fleeing, and the conditions these families and individuals are forced to endure when they’ve been turned away from our borders.”
“We hope, by sharing these stories, that the conscience of our country is awoken right now, and the need to change the policies that we have in place” is accepted, O’Rourke said while hosting a livestream on his Facebook account.
O’Rourke is criticizing the “the Trump administration’s unlawful ‘Remain in Mexico’ program” that prevents even more flooding of the U.S. by forcing refugees to wait in Mexican border cities as their asylum cases are processed.

He had previously claimed that Trump was responsible for the deaths of two migrants, a man and his young daughter, who tragically drowned in the Rio Grande while making the dangerous trek up to the U.S. from the third world.

As his administration refuses to follow our laws — preventing refugees from presenting themselves for asylum at our ports of entry — they cause families to cross between ports, ensuring greater suffering & death. At the expense of our humanity, not to the benefit of our safety.

Democrats like O’Rourke are now admitting that there is a national emergency at the U.S. southern border, after declaring that one did not exist for months, and now place the blame squarely on Trump despite the situation worsening immeasurably due to their denial and inaction.
O’Rourke hopes that Trump rolls over and allows the third-world invasion to destroy what’s left of U.S. sovereignty, as that would mean more Democratic Party voters and pave the way for socialism to fully take over.
Border Patrol Officials Reporting Biden Surge in Illegal Immigration Following Election
They think they’ll be granted amnesty.
Senior Border Patrol officials are warning of a surge in illegal migration at the southern border in recent weeks, coming directly in response to perceived results of the still-pending presidential election.
Acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan is ascribing a 21% increase in apprehension levels at the border over the last month to both economic circumstances in Central America and “perceived and or anticipated shifts in policies” following the November 3rd election. Morgan was speaking to the Washington Times.
CBP personnel intercepted 69,000 illegal migrants at the southern border in October, up from 58,000 in September.
Illegal immigration levels declined in early 2020 due to the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, but they’ve increased in recent months as border crossers flee the effects of the virus’s recession in Central America and Mexico. CBP has been authorized by the Trump administration to use expedited “expulsion” policies to return illegal immigrants to the nation they came from on the basis of coronavirus public health concerns.
Joe Biden has pledged to open the borders of the United States, stating that he intends only to deport felons convicted of violent crimes while in the country illegally. This repudiation of immigration enforcement, if actually adopted, would likely lure tens of millions- if not hundreds of millions- of unauthorized migrants to the United States in various forms in coming years.
Biden has also pledged to grant American citizenship to more than 11 million illegal aliens present in the United States. This proposal would require the cooperation of Congress, but he can reinstate the DACA amnesty program through executive action.
Asylum seekers camped out in the Mexican border city of Matamoros reportedly celebrated Biden’s perceived victory, eager for a chance to obtain access to the United States’ welfare, public education, healthcare and infrastructure.
Illegal immigration and cheap labor advocates have claimed that porous borders are an inevitability, but the contrast between President Trump’s immigration enforcement and the ramifications from the mere international perception of a Joe Biden administration seems to suggest otherwise.
