On Monday, presidential candidate Julián Castro escorted twelve migrants to the Texas border from Mexico.
According to The Los Angeles Times, the migrants consisted of a deaf woman from El Salvador and her three relatives, along with eight gay and lesbian asylum seekers from Cuba, Guatemala, and Honduras.
The stunt by Castro, who previously served as the mayor of San Antonio and secretary of Housing and Urban Development under the Obama administration, was executed to illustrate his opposition to a policy barring migrants who seek alysum from staying in the United States before their court dates, dubbed the “Remain in Mexico” policy.
“This Remain in Mexico program is a complete disaster,” Castro said, according to the LA Times. “People should not be living like this.”
“This president has helped create a humanitarian crisis,” the Democrat added. “People are living in squalor.”
