NOT A CRISIS?
“While delusional Beto O’Rourke continues to deny there is a ‘crisis’ on the border, cities like El Paso are issuing emergency declarations due to the massive number of illegal immigrants expected to flood into the country once Title 42 is lifted.” – Mark Miner, Communications Director
O’Rourke Has Repeatedly Underplayed The Crisis At Border, Saying It’s Not A “Crisis” Or A “Problem”:
In Houston on Friday, O’Rourke Said He Wouldn’t Deploy The National Guard To The Border Because There’s Not “A Real Emergency Or A Real Crisis.” O’ROURKE: “I commit that I would never activate the National Guard unless there were a real emergency or a real crisis that necessitated their service.” (Beto O’Rourke, Remarks, 5/20/22)
