"Beto" O'Rourke Decides to Say the Quiet Part Loud and Crosses the Border Into Mexico to Campaign for Mexican Votes

The Democrats are all doing this, metaphorically. But the rapidly-fading "Beto" decided to make it literal.

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke visited Mexico on Sunday and listened to tearful immigrants say they fled Central American violence and turmoil to seek asylum in the U.S., but were turned away at the border.

In his first international trip as a White House hopeful, the former congressman traveled to Ciudad Juarez, across the Rio Grande from his native El Paso, Texas, to meet what his campaign described as "individuals and families directly impacted by Donald Trump’s cruel and inhumane policies."

A fluent Spanish speaker, O'Rourke met around a table at a shelter with immigrants from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala, some of whom wept as they told of being denied entry into the U.S. while their asylum claims are processed. Many said they were terrified they’d be sent back to their home countries, where their lives had been threatened because of abusive spouses, street gang violence or drug smugglers.

"Fluent" in Spanish. You all got to hear some of that "fluency" in the debate. Donde esta el casa de Pepe.

The leftwing and the media that serves it weren't upset that Trump was "colluding with Russians." What always maddened them was that Trump was colluding with Americans.
