Texas Senator Ted Cruz has strongly criticized the Biden administration, accusing them of intentionally allowing the Southern U.S. border to collapse and enabling an ongoing invasion. Speaking from the border, Cruz expressed his anger at what he deemed a deliberate decision made by President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, and Congressional Democrats.
We’re witnessing an absolute travesty unfolding on our southern border.

The Deliberate Border Crisis Unfolding. Senator Ted Cruz passionately voiced his concerns, labeling the situation on the Southern U.S. border as an absolute travesty deliberately orchestrated by the Biden administration. He condemned their decision to open up the border, referring to it as nothing less than an invasion. Cruz questioned the absence of President Biden, Vice President Harris, Elizabeth Warren, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC), suggesting they disregard the escalating number of casualties.
Migrant parole releases BLOCKED by a federal judge tonight as a result of a lawsuit filed by the state of Florida. The Biden admin argued that if the releases were blocked, CBP would have 45,000 migrants in custody by the end of the month & would be “catastrophic”. https://t.co/HydPaF5tsL

Cruz characterized the current circumstances as witnessing modern-day slavery and lamented that the Biden administration was encouraging further influx. He pointed out the record-breaking numbers of apprehensions, emphasizing the highest levels in history on both Monday and Tuesday. At the specific location where he stood, Cruz highlighted the presence of over 22,000 individuals camped just south of the border, preparing to cross illegally. He further disclosed that over 35,000 Venezuelans had already crossed the border unlawfully within a month.
Title 42 Expiration and Legal Intervention. Senator Cruz drew attention to the imminent expiration of Title 42, anticipating a surge in the number of illegal crossings. He labeled this situation as an invasion deliberately facilitated by the Biden administration, aiming to inflate the figures. Despite the obstacles imposed on them by their political superiors, Cruz acknowledged the heroic efforts of the men and women from the Border Patrol and expressed gratitude and support for their commitment to protecting the border.

In a scathing critique, Cruz mentioned the Biden administration’s pride in employing apps on their phones to facilitate illegal immigration. He compared this to an Amazon-like service, ensuring quick processing and transportation of individuals anywhere in the country. Cruz highlighted the alarming statistic of over 6.5 million people crossing illegally since President Biden assumed office, stressing the administration’s desire to increase this number exponentially, regardless of the mounting death toll.
NEW: Video from our FOX drone shows another group of migrants attempting to cross into Brownsville illegally, but they are physically blocked/repelled by Texas National Guard soldiers & @TxDPS troopers stationed behind rows of razor wire. Will Biden DOJ sue over this new action? pic.twitter.com/izIHpRhHlr

Federal Judge Blocks Catch and Release Policy. Hours before the expiration of the Title 42 public health order, a federal judge intervened and imposed a two-week restraining order on the Biden administration’s catch and release policy. This policy allowed for the release of illegal immigrants without requiring court dates. Judge T. Kent Wetherell II’s ruling was in response to a lawsuit filed by Florida’s Attorney General Ashley Moody. The judge deemed the policy’s formulation at such a late stage, without addressing the imminent expiration of the Title 42 Order, inconceivable.
