On Friday, Vanity Fair released a cover and story featuring Beto O’Rourke, addressing a potential 2020 presidential run.

However, many Twitter users couldn’t help but notice O’Rourke’s dog, Artemis.

Artemis is seen on the corner of the cover looking off into the distance. Not surprisingly, the Internet picked up on the pensive dog.

El Paso police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man recorded using a cloned debit card at an East Side ATM.

The man managed to take more than $600 in repeated withdrawals from the victim’s account in the Crime of the Week.

At about 8 p.m. March 12, the thief walked into the Walgreens store at the Fountains at Farah shopping center and used the ATM three times.

Afterward, the man walked out and left the area in a dark colored sedan.

He is described as Hispanic, in his 20s or early 30s, with a mustache and beard. The suspect was wearing a yellow jacket and black pants.

Anyone with information on the thief should call Crime Stoppers of El Paso at 566-8477 (TIPS). People also can leave tips online at crimestoppersofelpaso.org

Tipsters can remain anonymous, and if the information leads to an arrest, they can qualify for a cash reward.

U.S. Rep. Veronica Escobar took on topics important to the community during a town hall Saturday, including the finalist for president of the University of Texas at El Paso, the burgeoning immigration issue and gun laws.

About 50 people attended the town hall held by the El Paso Democrat at Project Amistad, 3210 Dyer St.

Members of the We the Students Coalition and a parent of a transgender teen who identifies as male expressed concerns about U.S. Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson becoming the next UTEP president. She was selected by the UT System Board of Regents as the sole finalist for the job.

“Due to her anti-LGBTQ actions, her track record has shown us she does not represent or welcome our values,” said Mario A. Lindsey, a senior history, philosophy and anthropology major at UTEP. He asked Escobar about the possibility of Wilson’s name being withdrawn as a candidate.

Escobar said she believes Wilson will unanimously be made president but said she, too, is uncomfortable with the nomination and applauds students for speaking up. She emphasized she will work with Wilson but will hold her accountable.

“I am going to do my best to walk that fine line of ensuring that UTEP remains successful,” she said, “that I don’t do anything that harms the university or the students there but that I do what I can to protect the vulnerable and lift up their voices and make sure that in my direct conversations with her” they are heard.

After the meeting, Lindsey said Escobar’s answer was safe but positive, adding that he will remain involved in student government to also hold Wilson accountable for any actions that impact the LGBTQ community.

Asked about the immigration issue, Escobar said making asylum seekers return to Juárez while they wait on their asylum claims makes a challenging situation worse because it makes it harder for them to access lawyers.

Escobar: US could learn from Jordan how to handle migrant influx

Escobar said the United States could learn from how the Jordanian government is handling the immigration influx from Syria. She recently returned from a trip to the Middle East and visited the Jordanian-Syrian border.

“One point six million Syrians have fled and have come into Jordan. That border is presumably one of the most dangerous borders in the world and has no wall,” she said. “They use technology primarily funded by the American taxpayer. And that’s how they stay secure, and it’s a fraction of what we have been spending on physical barriers.”

Escobar said the country of Jordan has embraced the refugees and integrated them into the country and is processing them in a couple of hours, instead of days like in El Paso.

She said she is asking the commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection to allow volunteers — such as those from Annunciation House — inside the planned central processing center to expedite the processing of immigrants. The volunteers could be there to assist with contacting sponsors and making transportation arrangements for the migrants’ final destinations, alleviating the local burden of feeding and clothing them before sending them on their way after several days.

On the topic of gun control, Escobar said she grew up with guns but sees a need for Congress to pass common-sense laws that protect children.

“Our laws that we are proposing in the U.S. Congress are common-sense laws to close the loopholes and better regulate something that has been undebated in Congress for too long,” she said, adding that the NRA and special interest groups have had an iron grip on the issue.
