BURLINGTON – Beto O’Rourke, the 46-year-old ex-Democratic House representative from Texas, declared his presidential candidacy yesterday. During his campaign speech, he made a bold assertion: We need to give Texas back to Mexico.
“We need to do the right thing. Texas doesn’t belong to us. It belongs to Mexico. The Alamo was a mistake. When I become President, I will give Texas back to Mexico. This will help alleviate our immigration crisis. Furthermore, giving Mexico the NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston will help Mexico finally build their space program which in turn will benefit all of humanity. Besides, we need more Mexicans in space,” said Beto during his campaign rally.
