Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke called for the removal of border walls during a visit to Homestead Temporary Shelter for Unaccompanied Children in Miami-Dade County in Florida during which he blamed border walls for the deaths of “thousands of people.” O’Rourke elaborated, “More walls means more suffering and more death, so no more walls.

Instead, Beto’s policy serves as a de facto red carpet for would-be terrorists.
