Beto O'Rourke draws hundreds in Nashville, slams Trump's immigration policies during two-day stop [View all]

Democratic presidential hopeful Beto O'Rourke drew a crowd of supporters in Nashville Sunday, largely focusing on immigration as he vowed to undo current federal policies on asylum seekers and pitched his ability to appeal to red state voters.

The former Texas congressman is spending two days in Nashville, drawing hundreds for a rally at Marathon Music Works on Sunday before he is scheduled to tour a food bank and take part in a roundtable on immigration Monday.
