Texas Senator Ted Cruz tore into President Joe Biden’s administration and alleged that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez pretended to cry during a visit to the U.S.- Mexico border during Donald Trump’s administration.
He went ahead to challenge President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris and other Democrats to go to the southern borders and see for themselves.
Let’s see AOC cry in front of the Biden cages. Let’s see Joe Biden or Kamala Harris or [White House press secretary] Jen Psaki say ‘there is no border crisis’ as we stand in front of the Biden cages. They are lying and they’re counting on the media to cover up their lies, and it’s incredibly cynical and it’s wrong,” Cruz said.
Yazmin Juárez said she fled Guatemala with her young daughter Mariee. She always hoped to be granted asylum in America. After being held in U.S. custody, the 21-month-old toddler died. On Wednesday, the young mother shared her story in front of House lawmakers and the emotional testimony brought AOC to tears.
Juárez requested medical care for her daughter and received medication, her daughter’s health failed. Six weeks after Juárez and her daughter were discharged from the ICE facility, Mariee died.
I’m proud to know quite a few heroes in our Border Patrol, and, even before Biden’s slander, they were demoralized and dispirited because, under the Biden-Harris administration, they risk their lives to apprehend drug traffickers and human traffickers only to see their political superiors release them through the revolving door of Biden’s open borders. Now, not only are they having their work undermined, but Biden is threatening political retribution because of open border radicals in the Democratic Party believe that the Border Patrol is what Nancy Pelosi call them,” Cruz added.
However, Cruz a potential presidential candidate in 2024, accused Biden of ‘attacking the Border Patrol, vowing that they will pay for doing their job’ and ‘repeating the outright lie that they were carrying whips.’ He called it a ‘low point, even for this White House.’
