Watch: Cruz's First Hand Account Of The Biden Border Crisis: It's A ‘Public Health Menace’
Texas Senator, Republican Ted Cruz, has been one of the very few people permitted inside the immigration facilities at the southern border. On Tuesday, Cruz gave more details of what he witnessed at the overcrowded makeshift holding stations. Cruz says that the Biden border crisis is 'a public health menace'.
Cruz began, "Last Thursday and Friday I brought a group of 19 senators down to the border in Texas to the Rio Grande Valley. We started the trip Thursday night by joining the border patrol agents for their 10 p.m. muster. All of us took the chance to tell them 'thank you,' particularly at a time where they're not getting the support from their political superiors, I think it was important for them to know that we love them and we're grateful for the bravery they show every day."
The Senator went on to add, "We then joined them on their midnight patrol. We went out, we encountered caravans of illegal immigrants. Walking up the trails, coming north from the Rio Grande river. We saw little kids walking, some of them walking alone."
Cruz continues, "We saw young mothers, some of them carrying infants and nursing them as they walked along the trails. And they all went to the first processing facility CBP has set up. It's outside, it's underneath a highway bridge, and it consists of a series of outdoor pens where the kids and the moms are just sitting or lying on the floor. They get processed, and they get sent through."
Cruz concluded, "The next day we went to where they get sent, which is the Donna facility. The Donna is this gigantic tent city, it's massive. It was designed to hold 1,000 people, but with COVID restriction, it's capacity is only 250. When we toured the Donna facility, there were over 4,000 people cramed into there. These are the Biden cages'."
Cruz was rushed at once facility by a Biden staffer who tried to prevent the senator from taking photos or recording the conditions. The current White House administration has been ultimately silent over the overwhelming evidence mounting against them in regards to the inhuman practices at the southern border facilities.
