It took CNN host Jake Tapper three attempts to get a straight answer from Robert “Beto” O’Rourke on whether it should be a crime to illegally cross the United States border with Mexico.
The line of questioning from Tapper was based on a few months old policy proposal by Julian Castro, who wants to decriminalize unauthorized border crossings and begin treating them as civil offenses. O’Rourke was asked whether he agrees with Castro that laws making it a crime to cross the border should be repealed, but failed to come to a conclusion.
The article goes on to state the following:
“I don’t know if it should be repealed but we should acknowledge that most of those arriving at the border now, especially from Central America, are at the most desperate and vulnerable moment and they pose no threat or harm to this country,” O’Rourke began, before detailing one of his policies for how to deal with the border.
CNN had to ask Beto O’Rourke three times whether he thinks crossing the border should be a crime, still barely got a clear answer. Full video in link:https://t.co/PHx3CALPfU pic.twitter.com/r7RUzjb9Bb

Beto O’Rourke struggled to answer on Sunday whether he would decriminalize border crossings. This shouldn’t be a hardball question.
