SOUNDBITE (English) Beto O'Rourke, Democratic Presidential Candidate:"But when I heard about what had happened in Mississippi it was another dot that we've got to connect for the American people. That massacre in El Paso did not happen in, in a vacuum. This raid did not happen in a vacuum. There is an attack on immigrants and specifically Hispanics in this country right now under this administration. Other than to strike terror into the heart of this community. And if that were the goal and I think it is from Donald Trump we're seeing a 10-fold increase in these kinds of ICE raids and his administration versus the last administration. If that is his goal, he he is getting it done. He's terrifying this community people who have done nothing to anybody else pose no threat to America. So there's no other reason to raid this community other than to terrify this community that's exactly what they've done.  5.

STILL photo of immigrants watching as ICE raids in progressSTORYLINE:Beto O'Rourke on Friday became the first Democratic presidential candidate to visit one of the Mississippi towns where federal immigration agents raided chicken processing plants and arrested nearly 700 people, kicking off a new phase of his campaign he says will focus on President Donald Trump's damaging policies.It was the former Texas congressman's first campaign stop since he suspended his White House bid for nearly two weeks to stay in his hometown of El Paso, where a mass shooting killed 22 people on Aug. 3. The gunman drove 600-plus miles to open fire near the U.S.-Mexico border after posting an anti-immigrant screed online. O'Rourke argues that Trump's anti-immigrant rhetoric helped inspire the attack.He still plans to visit Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada, which kick off presidential primary voting, but has now vowed to also travel the country to highlight the stories of some of those people that, in his view, have been most hurt by Trump administration policies.That brought O'Rourke to Canton, home to a plant owned by Peco Foods Inc., which was among those raided on Aug. 7. He spoke for about 15 minutes in Spanish to a woman who owns a small grocery store in a neighborhood with many immigrants from Honduras and Guatemala. He also chatted with others, but many didn't want to speak to reporters for fear of reprisal from federal immigration authorities.===========================================================Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com(ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.
