From The Hill:
Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) said Thursday he would “absolutely” take down the border wall in El Paso, Texas, arguing that the structure has not made the city demonstrably safer.
MSNBC host Chris Hayes posed a question from Rep. Dan Crenshaw about whether O’Rourke would get rid of the wall if he could “snap your fingers” and make it happen.
“Yes. Absolutely. I’d take the wall down,” O’Rourke said on “All In” during an interview near the border on Thursday.
O’Rourke, who represented El Paso in Congress for three terms, added that he believes city residents would pass a referendum to remove the wall if it were put up for a vote.
He went on to say 4,000 migrants died trying to illegally invade the country because the walls made it so hard for them to stroll right in.
Remember though folks, as the New York Times assured us: Democrats do not want open borders!
