O’Rourke:Trump called asylum-seekers ‘animals’

Former U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke, a candidate for the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential nomination, used a televised town hall event Tuesday night to talk about trump’s immigration plans and said that President Trump called asylum-seekers “animals.” he called Trump’s domestic and foreign policy a “disaster.”
Describing those immigrants who come into this country as rapists and criminals — though they commit crimes at a far lower rate than those who were born in this country — describing asylum-seekers as animals or an infestation. An infestation is how you might describe a termite or a cockroach — something you want to stamp out, something less than human,” O’Rourke said.
You don’t get kids in cages at the border unless you dehumanize them in the eyes of your fellow Americans,” he added. “The day that the president signed his executive order attempting to ban Muslim travel to the United States is the day that the mosque in Victoria, Texas, was literally torched to the ground.”
