Sen Cory Booker Escorts Asylum Seekers to U.S. from Mexico

New Jersey Democrat and 2020 presidential candidate Senator Cory Booker escorted asylum seekers into the U.S. from Mexico.

Booker explained the plight of the five women he escorted into the U.S. to the media and streamed live from his Facebook page.

Fox News reports:

“These women had really horrific stories,” Booker told reporters in El Paso. “They are survivors of sexual violence, attacks. They are being preyed upon. They have legitimate fears. This policy that we have, what it’s doing is pushing people who are already vulnerable back into a dangerous situation.”

Booker touted his effort to assist asylum seekers:

According to The New York Times, the women accompanied by Booker entered the U.S. via a bridge in El Paso, Texas and were taken to a shelter.

CBS News reported on Booker assisting the migrant women (watch video).

Booker is trying to boost his presidential campaign via high profile advocacy and the southern border.
