Beto O'Rourke quotes

Juarez had become a failed city. The mayor of Juarez lived in El Paso. Not only did he not live in his own city, he didn't live in his own country. You had all these kids out of school who didn't want to work because they saw their mothers toiling in jobs for hardly any cash.

El Paso in many ways is the Ellis Island for Mexico and much of Latin America.

I'm for the DREAM Act. It makes so much sense. Following the implementation of the DREAM Act, we'll have a case study we can point to where we can say that we provided a path to citizenship or legal involvement in the community for these young immigrants, and the sky didn't fall.

In terms of immigration, we're seeing a lot of Democrats and Republicans use the really elastic term, 'Comprehensive Immigration Reform,' and they don't totally understand what that means. For us in El Paso, it's part of a larger discussion about the nature of the border.

I have to convince other Democrats and Republicans that it's wise to invest in the U.S.-Mexico border, not just for security, but also for mobility and trade, and that's why we should open up the border.

Part of the job for me and others from El Paso who live along the border is to dispel the myths about how supposedly dangerous the border is.

We in El Paso and Juarez are literally one community. There's no separation; there's no DMZ; there's no buffer.

The only time I can really relax is up a tree or somewhere outside. I love being outside. Tom Felton age

My definition of a friend is somebody who adores you even though they know the things you're most ashamed of. Jodie Foster

I grew up loving horses. I was relatively obsessed, starting with my rocking horse at age 2, all the way through my painting and drawing phase. Diane Lane
