Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has a challenge for Democrats: “go see the Biden cages.”
Cruz gave an impassioned speech on the Senate floor, asking his colleagues to take a trip down to the Rio Grande Valley to see the border crisis with their own eyes.
“Mr. President, every Democrat who stood up and lamented kids in cages, in the House of Representatives, Representative Ocasio-Cortez, has a famous photo of her grasping her head by the kids in cages,” Cruz said. “Well, I’m going to give a simple challenge for Representative Ocasio-Cortez and for every Democrat in this body. Go see the Biden cages with your own eyes.”
Cruz has been providing updates on the disaster in Del Rio, Texas, where 15,000 Hatian migrants have camped out under the international bridge. Deportations have begun, but so have reports of violence against federal agents. It’s a humanitarian crisis – one Biden is mishandling.
“Why does Joe Biden refuse to go to the Rio Grande Valley? Because if he goes, the TV cameras will come with him,” Cruz added. “Why does Kamala Harris, who’s supposed to be the border czar, she’s supposed to be in charge of this, why won’t she go to the Rio Grande Valley? Because if she went, the TV cameras would come and would show the Biden cages. And the Democrats are counting on the corrupt corporate media to suddenly say nothing to see here. 15,000 Haitians under a bridge in Del Rio. Nothing to see here. Anyone want to know what Joe Biden’s favorite ice cream flavor is? That’s the news!”
Cruz spoke further about the crisis on Morning With Maria, addressing comments made by Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas.
“That really is staggering with Sec. Mayorkas complaining about how much hard work it is because basically what he spends all day doing is dodging responsibility and making excuses for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.”
