Joaquin Castro on Immigration
PERRY: He needs to go to Willacy County where a border patrol agent was killed--shot down in cold blood by an individual who had been deported multiple times.

Washington has failed at that. We're going to secure the border and do everything in our power to make sure our citizens are safe.
