In an interview with Latino USA's Maria Hinjosa on Friday, 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Robert Francis O'Rourke confirmed that he is in favor of tearing down existing sections of the U.S.-Mexico border wall.

Hinjosa asks O'Rourke, "So Beto I just want to be clear. Have you said you want to tear down the wall? If I’m elected, I will tear down that wall. Then suddenly the Democrat is quoting the Republican Ronald Reagan– tear down that wall."

O'Rourke reponds, "Right. So the short answer is yes. I would include all local stakeholders."

He then argues that the more than 600 miles of existing border wall is "not working."
