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.
