Former Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro on Wednesday night lambasted conservatives' criticism of Democrats as favoring open borders.

"Open borders is a right-wing talking point and frankly I'm disappointed that some folks, including some folks on the stage, have taken the bait," he said in the second round of Democratic presidential primary candidates.

"The only way that we're going to guarantee that we don't have family separations in this country again is to repeal Section 1325 of the Immigration Nationality Act. That's the law that this administration is using to incarcerate migrant parents and physically separate them from their children."
