Sens. Ted Cruz, John Cornyn lead senate tour to Rio Grande Valley in response to immigration crisis

In response to the surge in the southern border, US Senators Ted Cruz and John Cornyn are leading the Senate delegation on a tour of the Texas-Mexico border.

Cruz posted an overnight video from the Rio Grande River. It seems to indicate a human smuggler on the Mexican side of the river.

“It’s Mexico over there. You can see that there are three smugglers there,” Cruz said in a video.

He also said that those smugglers were cursing US senators.

Cruz called to Pre. The Joe Biden administration, which strengthens borders and reverses what Cruz calls policy, is spurring a surge at borders.

Biden, meanwhile, says he does not allow unaccompanied children to stay on the Mexican side, who are hungry and exposed to the elements.

When asked if those children would be allowed to stay in the United States, Biden said it would be decided on a case-by-case basis.

The delegation also visited the Overrun venue, where Senators claim they saw mothers and children cramped in a small outdoor area with earthen floors.

“This is a humanitarian crisis, and this is a public health crisis,” Cruz said. “Illegal immigrants released are seven times more likely to test positive for COVID-19 than the American population, which is a national security crisis.”

When a reporter asked Biden if he could accept what was happening in the facility, he said, “That’s a serious question, isn’t it? So we’re going to get rid of 1,000 of those kids right away.” said.
