The state of Texas, which was once considered a "bleeding-red" conservative state, and whose electoral votes have not gone to a Democrat president since Jimmy Carter in 1976, has inched toward becoming a purple battleground state at the hands of Democratic activists vying to shift its demographics.
The most prominent example is Joaquin and Julian Castro, also known as the Castro brothers, who have had a grip on the Democrat Party both nation and statewide for nearly a decade.
During a 2013 appearance on CBS, which has recently resurfaced, the Castro brothers predicted that the Texas electoral college will place their votes for a Democrat president within the next few election cycles.
"In a couple of presidential cycles, you'll be announcing that we're calling the 38 electoral votes of Texas for the Democratic nominee for president," Julian Castro said. "It's changing. It's going to become a purple state and then a blue state because of the demographics, because of the population growth of folks from outside of Texas."
Joaquin Castro, the identical twin brother of Julian, agreed with his brother's analysis and said, "That's right, but it's not going to happen on its own. The demographics are changing, but it's going to take a lot of work from Democrats to lay the infrastructure for change."
"So we're very busy working on that now," he added.
However, despite the Castro brothers' predictions, the state of Texas has still maintained its grip on keeping it politically conservative. Despite many attempts to turn Texas blue, Democrats have not been able to shift the state House and Senate, nor have they been successful at electing a Democrat governor.
Republican lawmakers have warned that aside from the rule of law, the Biden administration's illegal immigration policies could impact the state's demographics, and suggest that Democrats' unwillingness to close the US/Southern border is politically motivated.
Julian Castro, a Democrat, is the former mayor of San Antonio and served in the Obama administration as United States Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. Joaquin Castro currently serves as a congressman in the US House of Representatives for Texas' 20th district.
Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk spoke about the clip on Friday, noting that the Castro brothers' comments alluded to the country’s current border crisis and that Democrats may attempt to keep illegal immigrants in Texas because blue states like New York, where bus loads of illegal immigrants have traveled, are already "Democrat enough."
Kirk stated that the “more third-worlders that come to America, the more government benefits that they could offer them, the more they can control them. The more anchor babies they have, the more that they populate urban centers that then help the Democrat Party.”
