The Biden administration has done its best to advance the leftist cause of opening the nation’s borders to undocumented immigrants.
A number of Republicans have spoken out against these policies, including U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).
During a recent press conference this week, he issued a clear ultimatum for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
According to the Daily Caller:
“Kamala, come to the Rio Grande Valley. Joe Biden, come to the Rio Grande Valley, Joe Biden, come to the Biden cages,” he said. “We’ve seen Democrat hypocrites go on and on about kids in cages when President Trump was president. They never mentioned that Barack Obama built the cages and the cages are bigger and more full under Joe Biden.”
He then said the Senate Judiciary Committee, where he serves as a member, has not address the migrant crisis since Senate Democrats only want to discuss amnesty because an “illegal alien is a future Democratic voter.”
“It’s cynical, because their view is if more children have to be physically and sexually assaulted to help them at the ballot box, so be it,” the senator said.
A number of other critics have weighed in on social media.
Per a new DHS court filing, Biden released 95,318 illegal immigrants into the U.S. in May.
This is open borders!

Congressional hearing tomorrow on “root causes” of illegal immigration.
This should be the shortest hearing ever: The answer is Joe Biden’s devastating open borders policies.

The timing of Garland’s visit to Ukraine cant make his priorities more clear:
Open season on SCOTUS Justices & Pro-Life Centers.
Open warfare in urban areas.
But prosecuting Russians for crimes against Ukrainians is far important than prosecuting criminals here.

Data from Customs and Border Protection reveals the true extent of Biden’s policies.
As Fox News reported earlier this year:
Migrant encounters at the southern border increased again in December from the prior month, according to data provided to a federal court by the Biden administration — the latest sign that the crisis at the border is likely to continue into 2022.
According to the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data provided in the Jan 14 filing, there were 178,840 migrant encounters in December, up from 173,620 in November. That in turn was an increase from the 164,753 apprehensions in October.
Those numbers are drastically higher than the previous year, when there were 72,113 encounters in November and 73,994 in December.
Here’s a clip of Cruz’s latest remarks:
