https://t.co/giyL6u3EVL Beto O'Rourke 2 weeks ago:   Wednesday Feb 6 - 3:31pm This cynical rhetoric of war, of invasions, of fear — totally disconnected from the truth — has led us to treat our fellow humans in the most inhumane way. And it hasn’t made us safer. We thought we could sacrifice some of our humanity for security, we risk losing both. Beto O'Rourke 2 weeks ago:   Wednesday Feb 6 - 3:27pm Not only that, but walls and militarization of the border have resulted in the deaths of thousands of migrants, including children. We are pushing desperate families to cross in ever more hostile terrain. We are ensuring greater suffering and death.
https://t.co/8v5NKNzQ8H Beto O'Rourke 2 weeks ago:   Wednesday Feb 6 - 3:25pm And, by the way, none of this stuff has worked. As the border became more militarized, and deadlier, immigrants stopped returning to their home countries. In effect, this policy actually increased the number of undocumented immigrants in the U.S. Beto O'Rourke 2 weeks ago:   Wednesday Feb 6 - 2:53pm “Yet, Mexicans nonetheless bore the brunt of the deportation campaign launched in the name of the war on terrorism, comprising 72 percent of those removed in 2009.” Beto O'Rourke 2 weeks ago:   Wednesday Feb 6 - 2:52pm “With the passage of the Patriot act in late 2001, the number of deportations increased again and reached nearly 400,000 in 2009. None of the terrorist attacks involved Mexicans, and none of the terrorists entered through Mexico...all came to the united States on legal visas.” Beto O'Rourke 2 weeks ago:   Wednesday Feb 6 - 2:48pm We’ve conflated the war on terror, the war on drugs, with immigration. This has led to mass deportations & militarization at a time of record safety on the U.S. border. False fear is cynically stoked to harm those who pose no threat to this country. https://t.co/pyzVtfja6R Beto O'Rourke 2 weeks ago:   Wednesday Feb 6 - 2:25pm Our government built a border fence in El Paso in 2008, a misguided response to 9/11 (no terrorists have crossed the southern border and attacked this country). It didn’t make us any safer. In fact crime in El Paso increased after it was built. https://t.co/JtP6ZxEoIE Beto O'Rourke 2 weeks ago:   Tuesday Feb 5 - 10:11pm RT @madlinbmek: It wasn't true when Sarah Huckabee Sanders said it in 2018, it wasn't true when AG Ken Paxton said it in January and it still isn't true tonight now that the president has said it.

Beto O'Rourke 1 month ago:   Friday Jan 11 - 12:00pm The same power we saw from those who showed up on Father’s Day in Tornillo last year — who formed the political pressure to force this administration to end family separation, to stop this country from taking kids from their parents at the border. Beto O'Rourke 1 month ago:   Friday Jan 11 - 11:59am The last child has left Tornillo. It’s good for these kids and their families. And it shows the power of people who showed up for them and shared with the rest of the country that we were locking up immigrant kids for months at a time. You made this happen.
