Beto O’Rourke shared a video on Twitter this Friday listing negative consequences from constructing a wall between Mexico and U.S.
“The southern border already has over 600 miles of wall and fence. And since 2007, the undocumented population has grown more through visa overstays than unauthorized border crossings. We need realistic immigration reform, not a symbol of division,” claimed outgoing Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas).

His video released Friday comes as lawmakers continue to debate over funding for Trump’s border wall.
The Texas congressman has been criticised by the left for accepting donations from oil industry workers. “I don’t know. I’m just, as you may have seen and heard over the course of the campaign, I’m not big on labels,” said the outgoing Texas congressman when asked if he identifies as a progressive Democrat.
O’Rourke suggested that he would vote to impeach Donald Trump if such a motion came to the House floor.
