Beto: We Don’t Need a Wall Because We Don’t Have a Problem at the Border

"You and I will be forced to take their property to solve a problem we do not have…”

Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) declared that the United States does not need a wall along its southern border with Mexico because there isn’t an illegal immigration problem along the border during a campaign event in Portsmouth, New Hampshire on Thursday.

“I’m here to tell you a profoundly positive story from the U.S.-Mexico border. We do not need any walls,” O’Rourke declared.

O’Rourke then said that building a wall along the southern border with Mexico would not be built on the actual international border but rather on “someone’s ranch, someone else’s farm, someone’s home.”

However, despite O’Rourke’s claim that “we do not have,” a problem at the border, the Washington Post reported on Thursday that border apprehensions are currently at their highest point since 2008.

In the past, O’Rourke said he would be in favor of getting rid of all the walls along America’s southern border with Mexico.
