Rep. Beto O’Rourke, a Texas Democrat, has a better idea.
Instead of waiting for illegal immigrants to cross the border and overwhelm the Department of Homeland Security and the Border Patrol, O’Rourke thinks the U.S. government should process illegals in their home country.
“So if we’re truly going to address this problem we’re going to have to address it here,” he told CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday. “Why not have State department and DHS down in those countries processing potential refugees and applicants for asylum on the ground so they don’t have to come through Mexico.”
Democrats want to simplify the process of flooding the country with illegals and take the arduous — and often deadly — journey through Mexico out of the equation.
Democrats are completely out of touch with reality and the people they claim to represent. A recent poll conducted by Business Daily/TIPP reveals a solid majority of Americans want illegal immigrants sent back.
Those who think the children “should be allowed to stay in the U.S. and eventually become citizens” totaled just 28%.
