    Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) falsely claimed during the third 2020 Democrat presidential primary debate that physical barriers at the U.S.-Mexico border built under the Bush and Obama administrations have killed “thousands” of border crossers and illegal aliens.

    “Democrats and Republicans, alike, voted to build a wall that has produced thousands of deaths of people trying to cross to join family or to work a job,” O’Rourke claimed when pressed on what he would do about the at least 4.5 to six million visa overstays living in the U.S.

    O’Rourke’s claim that existing physical barriers at the southern border, of which there is nearly 700 miles, are responsible for the deaths of border crossers and illegal aliens is false.

    An easy cure, if that number is true is not to illegally cross the border.

    Jaywalking kills hundreds of people annually. So should we abolish roads to spare those who chose to illegally cross the roads?

    It sounds like all of these travesties happened outside of the borders of this nation. Sounds like Mexico’s fault to me.

    IIRC, several hundred illegals die every year trying to enter the US.. The MSM won't tell this, but the number in the Trump years is lower than in the Obama years.

    It’s not a good idea to go prancing through the desert, on a days’ long journey with one bottle of water in your hand. Still trying to figure out how this is my problem...

    If you go to the U.S. Border patrol website you would find stories of rescues of illegal aliens trying to cross into the U.S. almost dailey

    Half of their time is spent on rescue rather than capture.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    . If you ain't havin' fun, it's your own damn fault
