Dan Crenshaw asked this Trump challenger the questions that sent them ducking for cover
The battle lines of the 2020 campaign are being drawn.
Every Democrat jumping into the race is hoping they don’t have to confront one basic truth.
But Dan Crenshaw asked this top Trump challenger a question that sent him ducking for cover.
Beto O’Rourke – who is widely rumored to jump into the 2020 Presidential race – held a pathetic counter-rally to Donald Trump’s massive event to pressure Congress to provide money for a border wall.
O’Rourke claimed the wall was racist and that walls actually killed people and didn’t save any lives.
That talking point sounds good on the campaign trail in front of liberal audiences, but it falls apart under the weight of the reality facing America.
Texas Congressman Dan Crenshaw took to social media and shut O’Rourke down.
He pointed out that El Paso – O’Rourke’s home city – was protected by a border wall.
So Crenshaw asked O’Rourke if he wanted El Paso’s wall torn down.
To hammer home the point, Crenshaw included a graph that showed illegal border crossings from Mexico into El Paso plummeted from around 75,000 the year before the wall was built to near zero upon completion.
.@BetoORourke should answer a simple question tonight with respect to the border debate:
If you could snap your fingers and make El Paso’s border wall disappear, would you?
Because this DHS graph shows that when the wall was built, illegal crossings dropped significantly. pic.twitter.com/JgquXfw2Ee

There is one simple fact liberals don’t want to face as the 2020 campaign heats up.
And that is walls work.
