BETO: Migrants Had ‘No Choice’ But to Come to U.S. Due to Climate Change

2020 Democratic candidate and Congressman Beto O’Rourke told demonstrators outside the Homestead Temporary Shelter for Unaccompanied Children that the children from Central America “had no choice but to come here” because climate change had damaged their home countries.

He blamed rising temperatures for causing droughts, which made food supply scarce. O’Rourke claimed these circumstance forced the people to come to the U.S. border and cross illegally.

O’Rourke was the fourth 2020 Democrat candidate to visit the protesters at the facility, where thousands of young people, mostly teens, most of whom arrived unaccompanied, are being held temporarily until they can be placed with U.S. sponsors.

2020 Dems Rep. Eric Swalwell, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and Sen. Bernie Sanders have all also visited the facility.

O’Rourke, who was greeted and briefed by local activists, turned his visit into a rally, spending roughly half an hour atop a ladder overlooking the fence around the facility.

“He who denies the stranger or the outcast, he also denies America,” O’Rourke said, citing Robert Kennedy.

“Instead of reuniting them with their families, we are incarcerating them in tents in a for-profit facility with no oversight,” he added. He went on to demand that the Homestead facility, and every other like it, be shut down.

Then, in Spanish, O’Rourke said, “We must reunite every boy and girl here with their family.”

Beto Blames Trump

Then, of course, Beto pointed his finger at President Donald Trump.

“Donald Trump has done this; its up to change who is in the White House going forward,” O’Rourke said.

He forgot to mention the facility was first opened under Barack Obama administration.


Expect more of the 2020 Democratic field to show up for photo-ops and tell every lie they can about the president and the entire situation.

But don’t expect any of them to tell their audience that Obama did it first.

  • Typical phony dem/liar. This clown would say, do and act anyway to pander for another vote. The dems are truly....worthless!

  • I have a hard time how someone can be so stupid, and then have the brass to say it in public. The people who voted this loser into office should run outside and play in traffic. Then you'll be just a stupid he is.

  • Everybody can see he's a hack without calling the cops. But call the cops anyway to escort the guys in the white coats that carry the long armed self-hugger jacket so they can take his dumb butt away.

  • Beat-off O'Dork does not have a clue why illegals are coming to America. These people make about $2 a day in their country. Their Government got foreign aid from USA for years but the poor people saw zero of the money. Their medical clinics have no medicine and school children are educated up to 6th grade. So they are coming to USA for money and to turn it into the same SHITHOLE they left taking us with them.

  • Climate change? They will freeze here in a few years when the ice age arrives, and Mexico will not let them back in to go home. Mexico wants the wall to keep them out!

  • That comment shows Beto to be a fool, or a liar, or both. Anyway you look at it he displayed he thinks with the direction of the wind, not his brain.

  • Some people earn their own way in life and others like bernie and gore and biden, marry rich mates and then try to tell others who are working for a living how to live.

  • The climate on Earth has been changing ever since Eve Enticed Adam to take a bite of the fruit in the Garden of Eden. The earth has been in a continuous cycle of change ever since and will be until the final days of earth.
