Sen. Ted Cruz blasted Democrats and Joe Biden during his trip to the e U.S.-Mexico border on Thursday ahead of the incoming influx of illegal aliens set to flood into the United States as Title 42 ends.
“We are witnessing an absolute travesty unfolding on our southern border,” Cruz told reporters Thursday evening.
“On Monday, we apprehended over 10,000 people on the border, the highest level in history. On Tuesday, we apprehended over 10,000 people on the border, again, the highest level in history,” he said.
“There are, right now where we’re standing, more than 22,000 people camped just south of the border, getting ready to come across just in this location,” Cruz added.
“In less than a month, we’ve had over 35,000 Venezuelans cross illegally, just right here.”
Cruz noted that those numbers were only in the area he was visiting, not including the other areas along the 2,000-mile border, giving context to how big the invasion will be.
“And I have to say I am angry because this is deliberate!” Cruz exclaimed.
“This is a decision that was made by President Joe Biden and Kamala Harris and Congressional Democrats to open up the border to what is nothing less than an invasion.”
“Ask yourself, ‘Why is President Biden not here,” Ted cruz asked at the border.
“Why is Kamala Harris not here? Why is Elizabeth Warren not here? Why is AOC? She still owns the white pantsuit. Why is she not here with her head buried in her hands?’ Because they don’t give a damn about the dead bodies.”
Cruz highlighted his grilling of DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas earlier this year on how many illegal aliens had died trying to cross the U.S.-Mexico border, which Mayorkas failed to answer.
Cruz also pressed the DHS Secretary on the number of women and children who had been sexually assaulted, but he also failed to answer.
“We’re witnessing modern-day slavery,” Cruz said.
“And maddeningly … the Biden administration has decided as they want more. Title 42 is expiring today. And you know what happens tomorrow? Those numbers go up. This is an invasion, and they want the numbers to go up.”
“Let me say to the men and women from the Border Patrol who are heroes. They are extraordinary heroes. And we’re down here to tell them thank you, to tell them we love you, to tell them we got your back even as your political superiors are making it impossible for you to do your job,” Cruz said.
“The Biden administration is really proud now that they have apps on their phone, that when someone crosses illegally, they can fill out an application in two minutes. This is the Amazon version of illegal immigration!” Cruz added.
“They’re gonna make it fast and deliver them anywhere in the country. We’ve seen six and a half million people cross illegally since Joe Biden became president, and the administration wants six and a half million to be 10 million, to be 12 million, to be 15 million, to be 20 million.”
“And the body bags that pile up, they can’t be bothered to worry about. I’ll tell you, the great state of Texas is on the front lines; the volume is overwhelming! It’s gotta stop!”

Average IQ in Venezuela is 84. I doubt these are even average, most likely what they want to get rid of. Not a bright future for America.
Ted, again, restated what everyone already knows. How about some action?
