Dem candidate Beto O’Rourke has remained completely silent on the migrant caravan making its way to the US border, most likely to come to Texas. The Daily Caller reports:
Texas Democratic Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke’s campaign would not share his views about the migrant caravan filled with thousands of people from Central America traveling through Mexico toward the U.S., when asked by The Daily Caller News Foundation.
In an email to TheDCNF, O’Rourke’s campaign responded to an inquiry regarding the caravan, saying the Texas Democrat does not yet have anything to say about the migrant caravan approaching, and sending a link to an immigration section on O’Rourke’s campaign website, which touts his lax immigration views.
“Beto does not yet have a statement about the migrant caravan. Stay tuned,” an email from the campaign stated. “In general, Beto believes that immigrants help our state and country grow strong, safe, and prosperous and wants to ensure that immigrants have a lawful, earned path to citizenship.”
O’Rourke told CBS News on Monday that he believes the U.S. needs to do “everything” to address the conditions where the migrants are coming from, saying people need to work with the other countries to figure out asylum laws.
