Beto O’Rourke is running for president as an open borders liberal.
But this is about to come back to haunt him.
He doesn’t want Americans to know about one video that can doom his campaign.
Beto O’Rourke announced his campaign for president on a platform of being the most open borders Democrat he could be.
The former Congressman for El Paso and famed loser to Ted Cruz in last year’s Senate election in Texas is determined to make liberal immigration positions the centerpiece of his campaign for president.
In Beto’s mind, borders are racist and anyone who supports border controls, let alone President Trump’s wall with Mexico, is unfit to hold office.
But while Beto campaigns across the country defending illegal immigrants and arguing there is no crisis on the southern border, there’s one major video making the rounds on the internet that could doom his campaign.
Breitbart has the story, “New surveillance video released by U.S. Customs and Border Protection reveals the moment when a group of 111 migrants crossed the border into Arizona.”
“The video was shared on social media by CBP, the parent agency of U.S. Border Patrol. The short video features thermal imaging to capture the 111 migrants from Central America crossing from Sonora on Sunday night.”
CBP Arizona ended up tweeting the video on social media, and Beto is going to be terrified of Americans watching the reality of illegal border crossings unfold for themselves.
“U.S. Border Patrol and CBP continue to see a rising number in apprehensions of migrants primarily from Central America intending to request asylum. The most recent statistics show authorities apprehended 396,579 who entered the country illegally from October 2018 to March 2019,” adds Breitbart.
“During a recent visit to the border, Acting DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan stated that cartels in Mexico and their human smugglers are largely to blame for the ongoing crisis and are the ones making handsome profits from current asylum laws.”
Beto made himself famous in Democratic circles for his opposition to any new border security proposals, as well as his defense of illegal immigrants and his desire to grant them amnesty in order to build a Democratic majority.
Now he’s on the defensive as his campaign begins to unravel in the primary, and his weak record on immigration and the border begins to be exposed for all to see.
Beto may have just ruined any chances he had of ever becoming president because he refuses to stand up for American sovereignty and national security by ending illegal immigration into the country and supporting border security.
Even if he wins the Democratic primary, which seems to be unlikely at this point, Beto still would have a long way to go before taking office. He would have to defeat Donald Trump in the November 2020 general election.
And Trump would have multiple aces up his sleeve on the issue of immigration that he could use to sink Beto’s campaign in a heartbeat.
Do you think Beto’s open borders record will prevent him from becoming president?
