Beto O’Rourke to March on Immigrant Tent Camp Sunday to Protest
EL PASO, TX -- (Press Release) Beto O’Rourke will lead a Father’s Day march Sunday morning to raise awareness of a newly opened tent camp in Tornillo for kids who are taken from their parents under the Trump Administration’s new policy. The Congressman will be joined by local leaders including former El Paso County Judge Veronica Escobar, advocates including Latino Victory Project, elected officials and concerned Texans as the group marches to the site where hundreds of children are already being sent without their mothers or fathers.
Sunday’s public March to Tornillo comes less than a week after O’Rourke visited McAllen to witness firsthand the developing humanitarian crisis along the border. He addressed the inhumane separation of children from their parents, the treatment, wellbeing and living conditions of unaccompanied youth, the denial of a legal asylum process for those presenting themselves at our ports of entry and recent actions taken by the Trump Administration.
