Tuesday evening, as the conversation turned to the border during the first night of the CNN Democrat debates, Democrat candidate Robert Francis "Beto" O'Rourke called for a multitude of different reforms to basically allow for the border to have a welcome mat instead of a wall.
O'Rourke called for all of the following:
- Waive citizenship fees for green card holders
- Free DREAMers from any fear of deportation
- Stop criminally prosecuting families and children for seeking asylum and refuge
- End for-profit detention
- Assist Central American countries "so that no family ever has to make that 2,000-mile journey"
Despite all of that, O'Rourke also said that he fully expects "people that come here to follow our laws."
