Beto O’Rourke attended the “March for Truth: Stop the Wall, Stop the Lies” rally yesterday. Below is the video in full.
Trump Lies in El Paso and Loses Bigly on the Wall
You didn’t expect President Trump to be honest about the wall, did you?
Now, in order to avoid another brutal shutdown, Congressional negotiators reached an agreement to finance construction of new barriers along the U.S.-Mexico border. Barriers, NOT a wall!
Instead of $5.7 billion for President Trump’s racist 16th century wall, Congress is settling for $1.4 billion for fencing. This will allow for 55 miles of new fencing. President Trump wanted 215 miles.
In addition, funding will be provided for ports of entry, humanitarian aid and new technology.
Trump of course, is now lying by saying at his speech last night in El Paso that they are finishing the wall. Trump has said before that construction on the wall has started, another lie. Only older sections that needed repairs were being worked on.
“We can call it anything. We’ll call it barriers, we’ll call it whatever they want,” Trump said. “But now it turns out not only don’t they want to give us money for a wall, they don’t want to give us the space to detain murderers, criminals, drug dealers, human smugglers.”
The full agreement should be known today as details are being worked out.
