Republican Sen. Ted Cruz exposed the Democrats during a Senate floor speech where he torched the blatant hypocrisy they’ve shown in terms of the border under President Biden.
Cruz challenged the Democrats to go see the state of the border right now under Biden’s weak leadership, mocking liberals like radical left wing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who used the border for a bit of political theatre in the past.
“I’ll tell you: I’ve been to the border. I’ve been to the Biden cages,” Cruz said. “For four years, Democrats went on and on and on, the corrupt corporate media went on and on and on about kids in cages. You couldn’t turn on the evening news without ‘hearing kids in cages.’ What they didn’t tell you is Barack Obama built those cages. And today under Joe Biden, the cages are bigger and they’re more full than they were before.”
“I’ve seen them in the Donna tent facility with over 4,000 people, with little boys and little girls on top of each other. Just a couple of weeks ago, when I was in the Rio Grande Valley, the rate of COVID positivity in the Biden cages was over 22%.”
“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 as he imitated the photo.
“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.”
“And all the Democrats who talked about this, if they don’t go, if they don’t denounce the Biden cages, then they’re telling you that they’re hypocrites, that they didn’t believe it when they said it, that they didn’t care about it when they said it, that it was all politics. It wasn’t about their kids.”
“Why does Joe Biden refuse to go to the Rio Grande Valley? Because if he goes, the TV cameras will come with him,” Cruz later 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 continued, “You want to understand what’s happening? Say there’s no crisis? Come to Brooks County. I invite every Democrat here to Brooks County. Brooks County in South Texas, it’s just north of the border. Brooks County over and over and over again. There are dead bodies of illegal immigrants. The traffickers who are bringing them in, they’re not nice guys. They’re not humanitarians. They don’t give a damn. That means if one of the illegal immigrants is a pregnant woman, is a young child, is elderly, is sick, they just abandon them. They leave them in the rough terrain in the summer heat and over and over again the farmers and ranchers encounter dead bodies on their property where the traffickers have abandoned them.”
