Protecting our country’s borders and ensuring the sovereignty of our nation should be the one thing we can all agree on. But it’s 2019 and the country has lost its mind. Or at least the Democrats have.


In the midst of the immigration debate, Texas Congressman Dan Crenshaw tweeted a question to the former Congressman from El Paso, Texas and former Senate candidate:

Friday, Beto was asked by MSNBC host Chris Hayes if he supported tearing down existing border barriers around El Paso, to which he responded, “Yes, absolutely. I’d take the wall down.”

Fox News has more:

He continued: “Here’s what we know. After the Secure Fence Act [of 2006], we have built 600 miles of wall and fencing on a 2,000-mile border. What that has done is not in any demonstrable way made us safer. It’s cost us tens of billions of dollars to build and maintain. And it’s pushed migrants and asylum seekers and refugees to the most inhospitable, the most hostile stretches of the U.S.-Mexico border, ensuring their suffering and death.”

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and other Democrats, including then-Sens. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, supported the Secure Fence Act of 2006, which authorized the construction of some 700 miles of fencing at the border. As of 2015, virtually all of that fencing had been completed, according to government figures.

“More than 4,000 human beings, little kids, women and children, have died,” O’Rourke continued. “They’re not in cages, they’re not locked up, they’re not separated — they’re dead, over the last 10 years, as we have walled off their opportunity to legally petition for asylum, to cross in urban centers like El Paso, to be with family, to work jobs, to do what any human being should have a right to be able to do, what we would do if faced with the same circumstances they were.”

Rep. Crenshaw responded:

And it’s not just Beto. Sen. Gillibrand jumped on board.
