Beto O’Rourke says immigration makes America safer as he kicks of 2020 campaign with liberal focus

Beto O’Rourke says immigration makes America safer as he kicks of 2020 campaign with liberal focusDemocratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke declared that immigrants make the country safer as he staged rallies across Texas on Saturday to formally kick off his 2020 White House bid, looking to shore up his deeply conservative home state and champion the US-Mexico border at a time when President Donald Trump has threatened to shut it.The former congressman, who represented El Paso for three House terms until last year, began the day addressing 1,000-plus supporters in his hometown, across the border from Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. He later spoke at the historically black Texas Southern University in Houston, before finishing with a late-night Austin event, addressing a large crowd a stone's throw from the pink-granite state Capitol.Bounding onto a makeshift El Paso stage in a blue-button-down shirt to The Clash's "Clampdown," Mr O'Rourke declared: "We are safe, not despite the fact that we are a city of immigrants and asylum seekers. We are safe because we are a city of immigrants and asylum seekers.""We have learned not to fear our differences, but to respect and embrace them," he told a crowd that waved small American flags and black-and-white signs reading "Viva Beto" while often interrupting their candidate to chant his first name. Mr O'Rourke also spoke at length in his native Spanish, eliciting loud and sustained cheers.In a series of tweets on Friday, Mr Trump warned he could close the US southern border next week "if Mexico doesn't immediately stop ALL illegal immigration coming into the United States." In later comments to reporters he added: "We'll keep it closed for a long time. I'm not playing games."Mr O'Rourke has made promoting the border as culturally rich and economically powerful the centrepiece of his campaign and spoke on a downtown street corner a few blocks from it. He decried federal officials' recent decisions to hold people who crossed into the US to seek asylum "in cages" under El Paso's international bridge, saying those detainees "are our fellow human beings and deserve to be treated as our fellow human beings." Mr O'Rourke entered the race 14 March and has already visited nine states, but had promised to return to El Paso for an official kick-off. As he has previously, he renewed calls to work with Republicans and Democrats, saying "before anything else, we are Americans first" and prompting chants of "USA! USA!" But he also made bolder predictions than in the past, saying that if his campaign can bring people from across the ideological spectrum together he can top the rest of the crowded Democratic 2020 presidential field and "defeat Donald Trump."A small but vocal group of El Paso Trump supporters had other ideas, gathering a few blocks away from the event to shout anti-O'Rourke sentiments for hours. Mr O'Rourke represented the city in Congress for six years, but gave up his seat while nearly upsetting Texas Republican senator Ted Cruz in November. The Democrat who replaced him in the House, representative Veronica Escobar, welcomed those on hand to the "beautiful, magical, safe and secure US-Mexico border," adding, "When the border sends America her people, we are sending them our best in Beto O'Rourke." Amy O'Rourke, who has largely avoided the spotlight since her husband began running for president, gave a short speech too, telling the crowd, "Listening to people is what gives Beto strength. It fuels him and it gives him context (with) which he can think about policies and the things he wants to do for this great country."Despite such nods to bipartisanism, however, Mr O'Rourke offered many positions on Saturday that were liberal enough to make moderates nervous. He vowed to legalise marijuana nationally, defend abortion rights, sign new sweeping voting rights legislation to end partisan gerrymandering and allow automatic and same-day voter registration, institute federally financed, universal pre-kindergarten programmes, strengthen unions and bring home all troops from the US-led wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.He also renewed his support for a House proposal called "Medicare for America," which he says will guarantee universal health care coverage while allowing people who like getting insurance through their employer to continue doing so.Mr O'Rourke hit many of the same points hours later in Houston, but recalled a school shooting near that city last year to advocate for nationwide federal background checks on firearms purchases. He added that assault weapons "sold to the United States military with the sole purpose of killing people as effectively, as efficiently and in as great a number as possible" should be "kept on the battlefield" and not "sold into our communities.”Addressing thousands and wearing a Texas Southern baseball cap, Mr O'Rourke also recalled the devastation in Houston of 2017's Hurricane Harvey, saying the US must do more to combat climate change and that the nation's fourth-largest city understands the phenomenon's dangers "better than just about anyone in this country."Concluding in Austin, he called that city's liberal politics "the centre and the source of so much of what is good for Texas and for the United States of America."Texas has not elected a Democrat to statewide office in 25 years. But Mr O'Rourke came within 3 percentage points of beating Mr Cruz, and his party is hoping that a booming Hispanic population and large numbers of new residents moving in from other states could keep Texas close in 2020 — potentially reshaping the electoral college. California senator Kamala Harris drew a large crowd last weekend when she too visited Texas Southern."This state and its 38 electoral votes count like they've never counted before," Mr O'Rourke said in El Paso. "All of us matter."Associated Press

Gilead combo HIV pill matches Truvada efficacy but safer in trial

(Reuters) – Gilead Sciences Inc said on Wednesday its experimental fixed-dose combination treatment for HIV proved as effective in a late-stage study as the company’s widely used Truvada combo pill but with significantly less loss of bone mineral density and kidney function. The company has already sought U.S. and European marketing approval for the new combo pill nicknamed F/TAF, which is meant to be a safer replacement for Truvada, a cornerstone of HIV treatment that has been associated with slight declines in bone mineral density and kidney function. “The results of this and other recent trials demonstrate the potential of F/TAF to become a next-generation backbone” of treatment for HIV, the biotechnology company said in a release.
