Senator Ted Cruz blasted President Biden’s “open border policies” during a fiery speech that charged his administration with the “suffering, chaos, and misery” being inflicted on Americans and illegal immigrants.
During a press conference on Wednesday, Cruz slammed “Democrat hypocrisy” over the crisis at the border. He attended the conference with Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), and the president of the National Border Patrol Council, Brandon Judd.
“Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’ open border policies are producing suffering, chaos, and misery,” Cruz informed reporters. “They are producing Americans being killed by the scourge of fentanyl. They are producing little boys and little girls being repeatedly sexually assaulted by human traffickers. They are producing crime and death. And Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’ open border policies are making your families less safe.”
Cruz branded the massive influx of illegal immigrants at the border a “manmade problem.” Then called for Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris to come and see the horrors at the border themselves, including fentanyl and sex trafficking.

“Kamala, come to the Rio Grande Valley. Joe Biden, come to the Rio Grande Valley, Joe Biden, come to the Biden cages,” the Texas senator implored. “We’ve seen Democrat hypocrites go on and on about kids in cages when President Trump was president. They never mentioned that Barack Obama built the cages and the cages are bigger and more full under Joe Biden.”
Then Cruz bluntly asserted that the Senate Judiciary Committee has not confronted the border crisis because Senate Democrats only want to discuss amnesty. He said that was because an “illegal alien is a future Democratic voter.”
“It’s cynical because their view is if more children have to be physically and sexually assaulted to help them at the ballot box, so be it,” Cruz charged.
Cruz made the case that every state is now a border state because of illegal immigrants being transported to cities across the nation. He branded Biden and Harris as the “last mile of the human trafficking network.” The Texas senator pointed out that the boys are typically forced to work for the drug cartels to pay off their massive debt and the girls are consigned to a “living hell” of involuntary sex slavery.
According to Cruz, the Biden administration has “undermined” Border Patrol agents who risk their lives every day to do their jobs and protect Americans.

Cruz believes that the end result of all of this will be that Republicans take back the House and the Senate in November. At that point, conservatives will move to secure the border and strengthen support for the Border Patrol.
The senator pointed to the election of Republican Rep.-elect Mayra Flores in a district that was held by Democrats for a hundred years. He predicted that two other Democratic districts will also turn red in upcoming elections.
“We’re going to see four new Republicans, Hispanic women, standing up and saying open borders are wrong and I cannot wait to see Nancy Pelosi and AOC argue with these Hispanic women, ‘No, you don’t understand what the border is like.’ What they’re doing is wrong and the American people are fed up with it,” Cruz concluded.
Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-SC) is also threatening to block the confirmation process for Biden’s picks to lead federal agencies if he doesn’t go to the border.
“You need to go to the border and hear from the agents in the communities in Texas and Arizona, the hell it’s like to live along the southern border. President Biden, if you do not go to our border to visit firsthand and see what’s going on and to hear from the Border Patrol agents themselves, you’re letting down your country, you’re derelict in your duty, and there will be repercussions for — for that lack of interest — here in the Senate,” Graham vowed according to the Washington Examiner.
Never in my life would I dream our country could be so fu#$ed up . How can they do this to our country knowing the damage there doing . That shows just how much of a piece of shit they are , doing this for the reasons there doing it for. They don’t care. LETS GO BRANDON!!

The Washington Examiner also reported that more than 239,416 illegal aliens have crossed the border within the last month.
