AUSTIN, TX – U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke, Gubernatorial candidate Lupe Valdez, and Congressional candidate Veronica Escobar have publicly said they would support the decriminalization of unauthorized border crossings. Republican Party of Texas Chairman James Dickey commented:

“Once again the left is trying to weaken our nation’s immigration policy. Beto O’Rourke , who already said he’d be open to abolishing ICE, and his far-left friends are incrementally moving toward establishing a class of citizens whose citizenship is based on breaking the law, and that’s unacceptable. O’Rourke continues to demonstrate just how out of touch with Texas voters he is. The same voters who have demanded that we enforce our immigration laws and secure our border.”
