For Immediate Release


“The fact that truth-challenged Beto O’ Rourke doesn’t even acknowledge the border crisis and changes his position daily on Title 42 should disqualify him from running for Governor. He’s embarrassing himself with his daily flip-flops and his complete disregard for the border crisis plaguing Texas communities.” – Mark Miner, Communications Director  

BETO TODAY: “Title 42 Is Bad Policy… We Must End Title 42…” Q: “Has your position on Title 42 evolved?” O’ROURKE: “Title 42 is bad policy. … But we must end Title 42, we must do that responsibly, and the Biden administration must step up by meeting with these border communities and working with them to make sure that we do that.” (Beto O’Rourke, Remarks, El Paso, TX, 4/15/22)

BETO ON TUESDAY: O’Rourke Said He Did Not Want The Biden Administration To End Title 42. “Democratic gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke knocked the Biden administration for failing to give border communities a plan for dealing with the number of migrants at their doorstep before saying he’ll end the pandemic-era emergency health order that allows federal officials to turn people away at the border next month. ‘It does not make sense to end this until there is a real plan and the capacity in place to handle those and address those that come over,’ O’Rourke said in an interview with The Texas Tribune on Tuesday. ‘I have yet to hear a plan from the Biden administration to address the dynamic we will have on the border once Title 42 ends.’” (James Barragán, “Beto O’Rourke Knocks Biden For Ending Title 42 Without A Plan To Deal With Influx Of Migrants,” Texas Tribune, 4/12/22)

BETO LAST FRIDAY: O’Rourke Said He Supported Ending Title 42. SVITEK TWEET: “Caught up with [Beto O’Rourke] today in San Antonio about the end of Title 42, which he’s called for. He reiterated his argument/reasoning that ‘beyond not being honest to the law,’ Title 42 is ‘creating more chaos at the border’ by leading to more repeat crossing attempts.” (Twitter.com, 4/8/22)
