When it comes to immigration, there are but a few political leaders in Washington DC who have both the gall and the experience to speak bluntly on the subject, and there is no doubt that Texas Senator Ted Cruz stands among them.
The Lone Star State is one of the states most profoundly effected by American immigration policies, as it shares an enormous border with Mexico – where a vast majority of migrants make their way into America. While some certainly do enter the country via the safe and legal naturalization process, there are plenty who do not, and therein lies the problem.
Now, as migrant detention facilities on the southern border become overcrowded, inhumane places, Senator Cruz has some harsh words for the Commander in Chief.
From a recent appearance on Hannity:
Cruz said, [relevant remarks begin around 4:00] “In terms of a facility like this, if you had a school, if you had childcare, if you had any facility that takes care of kids that was even a fraction of what the Biden administration has set up, you’d be shut down. The public health authorities would go after you. You would be fined. You might even be prosecuted. These cages that the kids were in, they weren’t six feet apart. They weren’t three feet apart. They weren’t even six inches apart. They were literally lying on the floor. There are no beds. There are no cots, lying on the floor side-by-side touching huddled under reflective aluminum foil emergency blankets.”
Cruz was recently blocked from filming the conditions inside these facilities by one of the Biden administration’s staffers – an incident that left many wondering what the White House was trying to hide.
