Dan Crenshaw Takes Beto O’Rourke to SCHOOL Over His “Walls Don’t Work” Claim

During a recent rally in El Paso, Texas, Democrat Beto O’Rourke attacked President Trump and his supporters’ plans to construct a barrier at the US-Mexico borderline to combat illegal migration, as well as drug smuggling and human trafficking operations.

O’Rourke, who many liberals see as a possible Democrat 2020 contender, asserted that “walls do not save lives, walls end lives,” while addressing the crowd at his hometown of El Paso.

“Cities in the United States of America are safe, not because of walls, but in spite of walls,” said O’Rourke, echoing sentiments of his fellow Democrats who remain vehemently opposed to the president’s proposed increases to border security.

However, Republican Congressman Dan Crenshaw, who served in Afghanistan as a US Navy SEAL during combat operations, was not impressed, and demanded an explanation from O’Rourke.

Crenshaw shared information from the Department of Homeland Security which proved that border barriers have drastically reduced illegal migration, and asked O’Rourke, “If you could snap your fingers and make El Paso’s border wall disappear – would you?”

The war veteran-turned-lawmaker went on to explain that, despite O’Rourke and others’ statements on the contrary, the rapidly rising numbers of illegal aliens and those encouraging their dangerous journeys require a physical barrier.
