Presidential contender Julián Castro escorted a group of migrants to the United States-Mexico border on Monday in an effort to get them released into the U.S. interior while their asylum claims are processed, but they were all returned to Mexico, according to Breitbart News.
Castro traveled to the Brownsville, Texas, area where he escorted 13 migrants in Mexico to U.S. Border Patrol agents. The Texas Civil Rights Project confirmed that all the migrants escorted to the border by Castro were returned to Mexico as part of President Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy. Castro said the migrants identify as “members of the LGTBQ community” and that they had been “beat up.”
“We presented them to these border agents and said that they should not be… they should not be in Mexico,” Castro said in a video posted to Twitter. “The Trump administration has chosen cruelty.”
In a separate tweet, Castro irrationally declared that Trump’s “agenda is killing people—and it’s on purpose. ”
