Don't try to sell us pendejos like O'Rourke because you think Hispanic people (like all minorities) are pets to be kept dependent so that you keep a hold of the power you so desperately need.
Sorry man, it's the Hispanic folks turn. Everyone gets a turn at the D table for their scraps and photograph.

It's a rhetoric actually.
O'Rourke said fencing has forced migrants to the most inhospitable areas of the southern border, "ensuring their suffering and death.” More than 4,000 migrants have died as a result, O'Rourke said. "They’re dead, over the last 10 years, as we have walled off their opportunity to legally petition for asylum to cross in urban centers, like El Paso," O'Rourke said. "To be with family. To work jobs. To do what any human being should have a right to be able to do."
He wants a better route to those people.
During an interview in his hometown on Thursday, MSNBC host Chris Hayes asked O'Rourke: "If you could, would you take the wall down here -- knock it down?"
"Yes, absolutely," answered O'Rourke, who is widely thought to be a potential candidate in 2020 but has not formally announced his intention to run. "I'd take the wall down."
