Julian Castro, a Democrat candidate for President in 2020 struggling to make a name for himself, pulled off a political stunt at the southern border that failed miserably.

Castro headed to the southern border near Brownsville, Texas on Monday, where he and a group of officials representing the Texas Civil Rights Project escorted migrants to border patrol agents in the hopes of having them released in the country pending process of their asylum claims.

The group of migrants allegedly were members of the LGBT community or disabled, according to Castro, some of whom had been “beat up.”

Thus, he thought they should be exempt from the ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy until their cases could be adjudicated. Prior to this effective policy, migrants were released in the States, but instead, stay south of the border while that process plays out.

Castro filmed himself at the border discussing the humanitarian crisis he and his party just months ago were saying was a figment of the President’s imagination.

Castro then took the AOC route, claiming the administration was intentionally killing migrants.

“What I saw in across the border in Matamoros, Mexico is a national embarrassment – one entirely of Trump’s creation,” writes Castro. “Make no mistake: his agenda is killing people – and it’s on purpose.”

Actually, one could argue that by refusing to acknowledge the crisis, then refusing to provide funding for a border wall or working with the President in any manner, it is the Democrats who willfully allow people to die unnecessarily at the border.

The Texas Civil Rights Project confirmed that the stunt was a failure, as all of the migrants were sent back to Mexico.

“We just heard the terrible news that all 12 of our clients escorted by [Julian Castro] were sent back to Mexico. This is of course a mockery of due process,” they fretted.

“As soon as the reporters left to file their stories, CBP released the asylum seekers back into Mexico,” they explained.

 

When your best effort to raise the profile of your failed campaign is to traffic migrants into the country illegally and you fail miserably, maybe that’s the time to hang it up. After all, other Democrats break laws far more effectively than this.

This past summer, Castro was questioned by a woman who said an illegal immigrant stole her Social Security Number.

“He was caught and released on his own recognizance, and never to be heard from again,” she explained during a town hall event.

“Would you be willing to penalize offenders taking advantage of Americans by having them not released if they’re known to be illegal?” the woman asked.

Castro’s response? “Crime happens.”

It certainly does, and there’s video evidence above to show it. Human trafficking, illegal border crossing, lying to federal agents, are all on Castro’s resume now.
