Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) denounced President Trump’s primetime speech Tuesday night as an effort to “instill anxiety and paranoia” about the U.S.-Mexico border, which the potential 2020 presidential candidate called “one of the safest places” in the country.

O’Rourke, an El Paso, Texas, native who represented a congressional district near the border for three terms, posted a two-minute video late Tuesday that showed southern border. He described the area as “peaceful” just hours after Trump delivered an Oval Office address aimed at building support for his proposed border wall.

The article goes on to state the following:

“By any measure the border is as safe as it’s ever been,” O’Rourke said. “And the president using fear and anecdote to try to instill anxiety and paranoia to build the political will to construct this wall that would cost $30 billion and take private property and cause death and suffering… that was what we heard from the Oval Office.”

    How about showing us what you’re looking at in the daytime. Appears to be some border there now? Do you live somewhere away from that border and as he said.. many are seeking asylum? There’s always been a legal way to do that Beto.. it’s called port of entry. He’s real clever in his push for 2020. He’s got that smooth sort of tone.. and uses it right. Sorry.. think we’ve been duped before in 2008.

    And the electric chair is as safe as it’s ever been.

    So Beto should put his life where his mouth is. He should move himself and his family to El Paso, right next to the Rio.

    We need a fact check on crime stats in El Paso along the border by illegal aliens fast.

    Beto O’Rouke is part of the problem, he’s a democrat that hates President Trump way more than he loves America! Loser! Jan. 10, 2019
