Beto O’Rourke, the failed Democratic presidential and Texas gubernatorial candidate, has once again shown his lack of understanding when it comes to border security. In a tweet, O’Rourke criticized President Joe Biden’s decision to construct a wall along the southern border, claiming that it makes it difficult for voters to “distinguish between him & Trump.” It’s clear that O’Rourke is more concerned with playing politics than with protecting our country.
Beto O’Rourke Says Biden’s Border Wall Makes It Hard for Voters to ‘Distinguish Between Him and Trump’

O’Rourke’s assertion that walls don’t work is simply false. History has shown us time and time again that physical barriers are an effective tool in deterring illegal immigration and drug trafficking. Just ask the residents of border towns who have seen a significant decrease in crime and drug activity since border walls were constructed. But I suppose O’Rourke would rather ignore the facts and pander to his liberal base.
1. Walls don’t work
2. President Biden promised he wouldn’t build them
3. Now even harder for voters to distinguish between him & Trump on border/immigration
4. Wasted opportunity to use executive power to actually fix our asylum system instead of impotent political posturing https://t.co/AQkxokNd2a

The Biden administration’s decision to waive 26 federal laws in order to allow border wall construction shows their commitment to securing our borders and upholding the rule of law. It’s refreshing to see a president who is willing to take decisive action to protect our country, unlike his predecessor who allowed our border to become a free-for-all.
Of course, O’Rourke conveniently forgets that it was Biden himself who promised during his campaign that there would not be another foot of wall constructed at the southern border. It seems that Biden is more interested in keeping his campaign promises and putting the safety of Americans first, unlike O’Rourke who is just looking for another opportunity to play politics.
It’s time for O’Rourke and his fellow Democrats to put aside their partisan games and start working to find real solutions to the crisis at our border. Building a wall is just one piece of the puzzle, but it’s an important one. Instead of criticizing the president’s actions, O’Rourke should be applauding his commitment to protecting our country. But I suppose that’s too much to ask from a failed politician who is desperate to stay relevant.
