“The Day by day Show” host Trevor Noah identified that O’Rourke appears out of step with nearly all of Texans on topics like busing migrants.
O’Rourke explained that Abbott’s “extremism” reflects “the indisputable fact that we’ve got a badly broken democracy.”
He denounced Abbott’s migrant busing “stunts” as “so cruel and unkind,” and proposed policy solutions to handle immigration, equivalent to a Texas-based guest employee program.
“What if Texas led the way in which in rewriting our immigration laws to reflect our values, our interests and our needs, and we said, ‘Look, [if] you need to come to this country, it’s essential to follow our laws,’ but our laws will follow our values,” O’Rourke said.
“I would like Texas to steer on that.”
