What Beto O’Rourke Just Said About Strict Immigration Laws And Slavery Is Idiotic

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke started his 2020 campaign off strong, but ever since his first day of fundraising this dude took a nose dive and is already pretty much swimming round and round at the bottom of the proverbial toilet bowl.

A lot of that might have to do with some of the rather weird, insane things he tends to say at events and during interviews, like oh say, comparing strict immigration laws to slavery for example.

Yes, he really said this.

This weekend, O’Rourke drifted even further left on immigration, declaring that immigration laws preventing free movement across the border into the United States were basically a modern form of slavery, reports The Washington Free Beacon.

O’Rourke was headlining the Center for American Progress’ presidential candidate forum in Las Vegas, Nevada, playing to a large group of mostly far-left Democrats. Asked about immigration, O’Rourke volunteered that he believes illegal immigrants are subject to “bondage.”

“[With] Immigration, millions [are] living in the shadows, working some of the toughest jobs, lucky to make a minimum wage. Some not even making that,” O’Rourke said. “Kept in modern-day bondage, their immigration status used as leverage to keep them down from fully participating in this country’s success.”

The “economy that works too well for the few, but not enough for most Americans,” he concluded.

So what is the solution to this problem then? What has the brilliant mind of O’Rourke concocted to make it all better?

Nothing. Not a darn thing.

The closest he’s ever come to formulating anything remotely close to an actual policy on immigration was earlier this year when he told an MSNBC anchor he wouldn’t just stop construction on a border wall, but rip up any existing walls and fences, essentially creating open borders for illegal immigrants to waltz right on into our country.

This man is nutty, a fact that has been made obvious by the fact he can’t seem to keep himself from floating all over the place on major issues. Most folks who support this guy couldn’t tell you what we believes and what he plans to do if he were to take office, largely because he himself doesn’t appear to know either.

Maybe Beto ought to think about just hanging up his political aspirations and just riding off into the sunset, leading a quiet life in the shadows? Probably a good idea at this point.
