Beto O’Rourke Finally Unveils His Immigration Plan And People Are Starting To Notice His Presidential Campaign

The 2020 presidential campaign is heating up. Democrats keep lining up, thinking they have what it takes to overtake the White House. President Donald Trump, however, believes his second-term is secured in the bag. Out of 23 presidential candidate hopefuls, some people are clearly falling by the wayside because if you don’t have the goods, then you might as well drop out of the race.

Beto O’Rourke, who had so much hype just a few months ago, is starting to falter. He’s trying to re-energize his campaign by providing actual details to his immigration plan.

After months of campaigning all over the country, O’Rourke undoubtedly had the best interest of Democrat voters. He wasn’t, however, providing real ways to solve the countries issues, one of them being, immigration.

While other candidates, including Julián Castro, have provided their remedy to the ongoing concerns of border security, asylum seekers, and people with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals status, O’Rourke was mostly silent about details. He is pro-immigration and a path to citizenship, but he told CNN that he wanted to hear from Americans first about their views on immigration before deciding on a plan.

O’Rourke said after hearing from countless people during his campaign, he has a solid plan that will help DACA recipients and help people become citizens.

Here’s his plan, “which would represent the most sweeping rewrite of our nation’s immigration and naturalization laws in a generation, is built on three key pillars:

1) On day one of his presidency, Beto will use executive authority to stop the inhumane treatment of children, reunite families that have been separated, reform our asylum system, rescind the travel bans, and remove the fear of deportation for Dreamers and beneficiaries of programs like TPS.

2) Beto will also immediately engage with Congress to enact legislation – focused on the key role families and communities play – that will allow America to fully harness the power of economic growth and opportunity that both immigration and naturalization will bring to our country’s future.

3) Finally, Beto’s plan would strengthen our partnership with our neighbors in the Western Hemisphere. We need to refocus on supporting democracy and human rights and invest in reducing violence because the only path to regional security runs through a more democratic and prosperous Latin America.

And this is just some of his points.

Here’s what people on social media are saying about this new expansive immigration plan.

Immigration is a major issue given the current administration inhumane treatment of migrants at the border. Every candidate running for the presidency in 2020 will have to come forward with a plan to help deal with the humanitarian crisis unfolding at the U.S. border as a result of U.S. immigration policies.

Whoever is doing the messaging for the O’Rourke campaign needs to be given the biggest raise.

We have yet to see if this will help his campaign get a boost in the polls. O’Rourke’s campaign has a pretty major enthusiasm problem. Everyone was focused on the Texas-native when he was running for Senate against Ted Cruz trying to make a Republican seat turn for the Democratic party. Now, people are glossing over the candidate for myriad reasons.

O’Rourke understands that handling the immigration issue is more than just domestic policy and procedures.
