Sen. Cruz in Newsweek: ‘President Biden Is Responsible For This Border Crisis’

"We have a humanitarian, public health and security emergency at the border. President Biden needs to reverse his policies and put a stop to it.”

Texas Insider Report: WASHINGTON, D.C. – Texas Sen. Ted Cruz penned an op-ed recently for Newsweek Magazine detailing the worsening border crisis created by President Biden’s dangerous immigration policies and highlighting his Congressional Delegation Tour of the Rio Grande Valley, where Senators witnessed firsthand the humanitarian, national security, and public health crises at the border.

In the op-ed, Sen. Cruz wrote:

“This crisis exists because of President Biden's policies. The first week Joe Biden was president, he did three things.
 
  1. "Number one, he immediately halted construction of the border wall.
  2. "Number two, he reinstated the failed Obama-era catch-and-release policy.
  3. "Number three — and this was the most indefensible decision — he unlawfully ended the ‘Remain in Mexico Policy,' an international agreement President Trump negotiated with the government of Mexico whereby Mexico agreed that Central American immigrants who had crossed illegally through Mexico would stay in Mexico while their asylum cases were adjudicated in the United States.
That agreement was a great victory, and it resulted in a massive drop in illegal immigration — so much so that in 2020, the United States experienced the lowest level of illegal immigration in 45 years. Now, because of Joe Biden's policies, we have the highest rate of illegal immigration in 20 years,” said Cruz.

“All of the senators who joined me in the Rio Grande Valley are telling President Biden what we saw at the border, how his policies are creating this crisis and imploring him to do something about it.

"We have a humanitarian, public health and security emergency at the border. President Biden needs to reverse his policies and put a stop to it.”
