    Presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke traveled to Ciudad Juárez, Mexico on Sunday to meet with migrants who were "turned away" from the southern U.S border.

    The former Democratic Texas congressman, whose district was on the border, said he was meeting with the migrants because they are people who are "directly impacted by Donald Trump’s cruel and inhumane policies," according to the Associated Press.
    The purpose of the trip, the campaign claimed, is 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."

    This is O'Rourke's first trip to Mexico as a presidential hopeful, and the first international trip of a Democratic candidate during the campaign.

    O'Rourke has criticized President Trump's "remain in Mexico" policy, which has asylum seekers wait in Mexico instead of the United States as their claims are evaluated and processed.
    He blamed Trump for the recent deaths of a migrant father and his daughter, who both drowned as they attempted to cross the Rio Grande river.

    This is NOT a joke. We’ve got Democrats campaigning in Mexico to be President of the United States.

    O'Rourke to visit Mexico, meet turned away US asylum seekers

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke visited Mexico on Sunday and listened to tearful immigrants say they fled Central American violence and turmoil to seek asylum in the U.S., but were turned away at the border.
    In his first international trip as a White House hopeful, the former congressman traveled to Ciudad Juarez, across the Rio Grande from his native El Paso, Texas, to meet what his campaign described as “individuals and families directly impacted by Donald Trump’s cruel and inhumane policies.”
    A fluent Spanish speaker, O’Rourke met around a table at a shelter with immigrants from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala, some of whom wept as they told of being denied entry into the U.S. while their asylum claims are processed. Many said they were terrified they’d be sent back to their home countries, where their lives had been threatened because of abusive spouses, street gang violence or drug smugglers.

    “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” becomes apparent, O’Rourke said via a livestream on his Facebook page.
    He blames those being forced to wait on “the Trump administration’s unlawful ‘Remain in Mexico’ program,” which has allowed the United States to return thousands of Central Americans to Mexican border cities as they wait to hear about their asylum claims. It is meant to reduce the attractiveness of U.S. asylum requests that in the past had allowed claimants to remain in the U.S. for years as their cases wound their way through the courts.
    Praising his hometown as part of the world’s largest “binational” community with Juarez is a centerpiece of O’Rourke’s presidential campaign, and he released a sweeping immigration plan in May calling for providing millions of people in the country illegally with a “pathway” to U.S. citizenship, while deploying thousands of lawyers to the border to help process asylum cases and earmarking $5 billion to improve living conditions in Central America.
    O’Rourke has long argued that his border roots make immigration an issue of strength for him, and heading to Mexico may allow him to show off that expertise amid once-promising polling numbers that have flagged in recent months. During the first presidential primary debate in Miami, last week, however, O’Rourke clashed with fellow Texan and presidential candidate Julian Castro, who chided the ex-congressman for not being willing to fully decriminalize crossing the U.S.-Mexico border illegally.

    O’Rourke has argued that doing so could result in drug- and people-smugglers being protected.
    Castro, a former Obama administration housing chief and San Antonio mayor, told a Texas rally on Friday night that he had suddenly gone from long being outshined by O’Rourke on the campaign trail to becoming “THE Texan in this race.”
    Asked Sunday on CNN if he was implying that O’Rourke’s presidential campaign was effectively finished, Castro responded: “No. I have a lot of respect for Congressman O’Rourke,” adding that “he and I get along well” and that the disagreement was purely over policy.
    Later Sunday, O’Rourke staged a rally outside the U.S. Border Patrol facility in Clint, Texas, near El Paso, where immigrant children have reported being denied access to such basic amenities as showers, soap and toothbrushes. Castro visited that facility Saturday.
    O’Rourke also previously traveled to a center holding immigrant children in Houston, and was one of many Democratic presidential candidates to visit one in Homestead, Florida, near the Miami debate site.
    A frequent visitor to Juarez before he began running for president in March, O’Rourke was there in December to meet with immigrants staying in shelters as they waited to begin being processed for U.S. asylum.

    Beto crosses Rio Grande to campaign in Mexico, courts asylum seekers

    Karen TownsendPosted at 12:01 pm on July 1, 2019




    Robert Francis O’Rourke, a.k.a. Beto, took his campaign for president into Ciudad Juarez Sunday. He met with asylum-seekers and bashed the current American president and his immigration policies. Like ya do. He’s chosen his side in the political debate and it’s not with legal immigrants.

    Beto is trying desperately to get his presidential campaign back on track if it ever really was on track. Fellow Texan and real Latino candidate, Julian Castro, made some inroads into attention shown to him during the Democrat debate last week. While Beto was once the favored Texas candidate in the race for the nomination, the tide has turned. Beto one-upped other Democrats and crossed the border into Mexico to show what a compassionate guy he is, or something.
    In his first international trip as a White House hopeful, the former congressman traveled to Ciudad Juarez, across the Rio Grande from his native El Paso, Texas, to meet what his campaign described as “individuals and families directly impacted by Donald Trump’s cruel and inhumane policies.”
    A fluent Spanish speaker, O’Rourke met around a table at a shelter with immigrants from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala, some of whom wept as they told of being denied entry into the U.S. while their asylum claims are processed. Many said they were terrified they’d be sent back to their home countries, where their lives had been threatened because of abusive spouses, street gang violence or drug smugglers.

    He live-streamed his trip on Facebook because he knew it would be a sure way to garner publicity. Is it a coincidence that the second quarter FEC deadline was Sunday? Maybe I’m being too cynical. Or not. He did have a tweet for both the trip into Mexico and one for fundraising.

    Replying to @BetoORourke
    The wealthiest, the most powerful country on the face of the planet is turning these families away from a land comprised of refugees and asylum seekers the world over. This can't be us. This can't be America. But right now, it's America and it's on all of us to make this right.
    We must end the Remain in Mexico policy, end metering, end family separation, and end the detention of those who pose absolutely no threat. But we must go far beyond that and fix the entire system.

    O’Rourke is critical about the Remain in Mexico policy. Beto has been promoting the most radical of immigration reform policies, while Julian Castro had set his sights on his own extreme ideas taking the lead in the open borders crowd’s support. One major difference became apparent during the debate – Castro wants to decriminalize crossing the U.S.-Mexico border illegally. Beto wasn’t ready to go that far.
    He blames those being forced to wait on “the Trump administration’s unlawful ‘Remain in Mexico’ program,” which has allowed the United States to return thousands of Central Americans to Mexican border cities as they wait to hear about their asylum claims. It is meant to reduce the attractiveness of U.S. asylum requests that in the past had allowed claimants to remain in the U.S. for years as their cases wound their way through the courts.
    Just in case pandering to asylum-seekers wasn’t enough to boost his appeal to Democrat primary voters, Beto held a rally outside the U.S. Border Patrol facility in Clint, Texas, near his hometown of El Paso. The Clint facility has been in recent news stories for over-crowded conditions for illegal alien children. Last week, O’Rourke traveled to Homestead, Florida, near the Miami debate site, to visit a facility that houses illegal alien children, like many of the Democrats, did either before the debate or after it. His visit to Clint came a day after Castro’s visit to the same facility Saturday.
