Beto O’Rourke says Trump is an “arsonist” who created the border crisis so he can get credit for fixing it

O'Rourke claims the answer is to send aid to Central American countries so they can fix their problems so people won't migrate

The U.S. has done that and it hasn't worked
In December 2018, the U.S. pledged $10.6 billion in aid to Central America specifically for improving conditions in those countries so people won't want to leave. The border crisis has gotten drastically worse since then. apnews.com/0fcda328120246…
Why U.S. aid to Central America has not worked
