Castro rallies against Trump, pushes false “animals” narrative

Trump was in town to sign two energy infrastructure executive orders.

Castro’s “People First” rally focused on immigration reform, and the current border security policy that the Trump administration has been executing.

Castro didn’t disappoint his supporters, focusing on the illegal immigration border crisis brought upon by the migrant caravans that have originated from Central America, and echoed an immigration false narrative about the president that many Democrats continue push.

While answering questions in the White House about immigration reform, Trump once stated that MS-13 gang members were “animals” because of their criminal actions.

Democrats quickly pounced on Trump, saying that he called all immigrants “animals,” and failed to mention that the president was referring to MS-13.

“It’s time for the truth in this country. The truth is that migrant families coming here are people, not animals. The truth is that our country needs them,” said Julian Castro

Just a day before Castro made this remark, freshman Florida Congresswoman Debbie Mucarsel-Powell (D) referenced the “animals” narrative as well.
