Forget about the slap in the face to legal immigrants. O’Rourke deemed it a slap in the face to “his conscience” that anybody would dare to question his desire to open the borders, launching into ridiculous talking points about “children in cages.”
In case the implication of his response — that if you oppose illegal immigration, you like dead kids — wasn’t clear enough, O’Rourke tweeted the exchange with the caption, “Immigrants pose no threat to her. And we need to call people out for saying they do.”
O’Rourke could just as easily have been talking to me.
As the mother of a police officer killed by an illegal immigrant who was able to remain in America because of the same immigration philosophy O’Rourke is pushing, the way he treated this woman makes my blood boil.
