Video: Rep. O’Rourke “We do not Need a Wall on our Southern Border”

Congressman Beto O’Rourke took to the floor of the House Tuesday night to challenge the notion that the nation needs a wall and that the border is dangerous.

Citing immigration numbers showing more Mexican Nationals returning to Mexico rather than coming to the, US and lauding the efforts of Border Patrol agents, O’Rourke passionately defended the border and El Paso.

  1. Congressman Beto O’Rourke is 100% right! we don’t need or want a wall on our Southern Border and we don’t want to ruin our relationship with the Nation of Mexico! As well as destroy El Paso and Juarez economies just because we now happen to have a FASCIST RACIST man in the Oval Office. But in reality it’s Advisor, Steve Bannan calling all the shots for the White House, just like Dick Cheney did when George W. Bush was president.And look what that got us into? Two Wars and over 4700 Service personnel killed not to mentions those severely injured and maimed by IED’S. With the draft dodger donald trump ALL AMERICANS Face Great Danger whether tourist or military alike.Donald Trump knows how to manipulate most Americans that watched the Apprentice on TV. Let’s fire Donald Trump NOW before he really ruins our entire country to the point of no return. Impeachment is the proper antidote to remove him from power.

    • Apparently, you are still in panic mode over President Trump’s victory. Looks like you are going to be a basket case for the next eight years!
