Liberals were elated. Their man Beto O’Rourke had closed to within four points. Four days later, he could be dead in the water. The first unforced error was when he said nothing is more patriotic than taking a knee during the national anthem. Was he aware that he was in Texas and not one of those big-money Hollywood fundraisers?
The second gaffe may have been even worse. He is actually campaigning on doing away with immigration law. He wants everyone to come to the United States where they can pick up their free goodies and fill out their voter registration cards.
The Washington Examiner reported:
A trio of Democrats running for top offices in Texas want to decriminalize unauthorized border crossings.
U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke, who’s challenging Republican Sen. Ted Cruz for his Senate seat, gubernatorial candidate Lupe Valdez, and congressional candidate Veronica Escobar told HuffPost they are in favor of such a move, which the report says would be simpler to implement than abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement, as some Democrats have demanded.
Decriminalizing unauthorized border crossings would go against the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy that led to family separations at the border. The Department of Homeland Security would still be able to charge unauthorized immigrants with civil violations, the report notes, but it would save the federal government billions in incarceration costs.
