Not making this up.

Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) campaigned for the presidency of the United States on Sunday — by talking with migrants in Mexico who have not yet tried to cross the border into this country.

In other cases, people tried to cross but had to return.

In a social media post, O’Rourke called the border policies of the Trump administration “unlawful and inhumane.”

He met with migrants who are waiting there for their U.S. court dates — and used the visit to promote his own immigration plan, as multiple outlets are reporting.

He’s still facing harsh criticism for his lackluster performance during last week’s Democratic primary debate on Thursday night.
