Beto O’Rourke Says Donald Trump Is Responsible For Deaths Of Migrant & His Baby Daughter Drowned In Rio Grande

U.S. Rep Beto O'Rourke (D-TX) of El Paso speaks during a town hall meeting at the Quail Point Lodge on August 16, 2018 in Horseshoe Bay, Texas. ORourke will be challenging incumbent Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) for the senate seat in the November elections.

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke took to popular social media site Twitter on Tuesday to publicly blame current President Donald Trump for the deaths of a migrant father and his toddler daughter who were found washed up on the banks of the Rio Grande River earlier this week, reported The Daily Mail.

O’Rourke’s message, which read simply “Trump is responsible for these deaths,” reflects the outrage that Democrats have felt over Trump’s strict immigration policies and his handling of the immigration situation at the Mexican border.

O’Rourke added in a separate tweet, “As his administration refuses to follow our laws – preventing refugees from presenting themselves for asylum at our ports of entry – they cause families to cross between ports, ensuring greater suffering & death. At the expense of our humanity, not to the benefit of our safety.”
