Ted Cruz: Beto has not answered the simple question

Press Releases|11.2.18

Should we allow this caravan to cross illegally into the state of Texas?

FORT WORTH, Texas – U.S. Senator Ted Cruz today spoke at a rally in Fort Worth and called on his opponent, Congressman Beto O’Rourke, to give Texans an answer on what should be done with the caravan of thousands of illegal immigrants traveling toward the U.S.-Mexico border.

Cruz said: “Beto has not answered the simple question: should we allow this caravan to cross illegally into the state of Texas? My answer and the answer of millions of Texans is, ‘absolutely not.’”

Multiple news reports have highlighted O’Rourke’s unwillingness to discuss the threat the caravan poses to the border security of Texas and the United States.

The Daily Caller, on October 24, reported that the O’Rourke campaign said, “Beto does not yet have a statement about the migrant caravan. Stay tuned.”

And on October 31, Red State reported that the O’Rourke campaign still has not made a statement on the caravan, noting that his most recent comments on the subject were reported by ABC News to say, “that concerns about the caravan have come from ‘an administration that’s trying to make us scared of one another.’”

Texans deserve an answer from Congressman O’Rourke as to what he would do when the caravan of illegal immigrants reaches our border. Will he uphold the rule of law and promote only legal entry? Or will he encourage these thousands of unknown immigrants to illegally cross into our homeland?
