Ted Cruz shares photos of ‘humanitarian’ and ‘public health crisis’ at US-Mexico border

The Biden administration has long been trying to downplay talk of a humanitarian crisis on America’s southern border. But thanks to new images captured by a pair of Republican senators, that reality is now going to be much harder for the White House to deny.

According to the Washington Examiner, Texas Sens. Ted Cruz and John Cornyn traveled to the U.S.–Mexico border last week to give fellow lawmakers a tour of the Rio Grande and expose, in Cruz’s words, what “the Biden administration doesn’t want the American people to see.”

A crisis at the border

In a tweet Friday, Cruz shared four images from his trip, three of which showed what appeared to be migrants sleeping on the floor of an overcrowded facility. A fourth depicted two children with their hands pressed up against a glass window.

“These are the pictures the Biden administration doesn’t want the American people to see,” Cruz wrote, as the Examiner reported. “This is why they won’t allow the press.”

Cruz went on to call the situation “a humanitarian and a public health crisis.” Take a look:

Incentivizing immigration?

Sen. Cornyn, for his part, lamented that the situation is unlikely to improve unless the Biden administration alters its course on the issue of immigration. “The Border Patrol and Health and Human Services and the nongovernmental organizations that are struggling to deal with this flood of humanity tell us they cannot get ahead of this without policy changes in Washington, D.C.,” he said, according to the Examiner.

Cornyn and Cruz reportedly hosted other lawmakers including Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley, North Carolina Sen. Thom Tillis (R), and South Carolina GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham, who similarly attacked the White House over its handling of the growing border crisis.

“Why are 18 senators here?” Graham pressed, as the Examiner reported. “Because it’s the biggest issue facing the country in many ways right now.”

Graham’s comments came after Biden’s first press conference of his presidency last Thursday, which the South Carolina senator called a “nightmare.”

“He told everybody, ‘Don’t worry, we’ve got crowded facilities. We’re going to build 5,000 more beds in Texas and a military base,'” Graham recalled, according to the Examiner. “So, how does that play in Central America? They’re going to expand the number of people they can take.”

Earlier last week, President Biden had announced that he was putting Vice President Kamala Harris in charge of “stemming” migration, the Associated Press reported. “Needless to say, the work will not be easy,” the VP said, in what may be the understatement of the century.

  2. Biden and Harris need to be impeached and any Democrat that can not stand for America and our Constitution need to go to. Call, write and email your Representatives Senators daily until we get results. Write to the supreme Court about the treason committed in the election. Urge them to rethink their decision to not look into the election fraud before our country goes down in flames.

    Stop complaining start calling and writing before its to late. I call and write everyday. 74million of us voted for Trump bombard these people with calls and letters.

    1. I also call, write but those on the other line hang up or say they will relay message.
      However, the waste basket is right in front or the call is not being recorded. So what’s the use ??????? The government in DC is definitely corrupt and sending our nation into a banana republic !!!!

  3. If Trump so much as mispromounced a word, he was deemed incompetent and was threatened with inmpeachment. yet people in charge today break all kinds of rules and laws and MSM is silent.

  4. Biden and the rest of the Democrats are rapidly changing the greatest country in the world into a 3rd world country. Treason is an understatement.

    1. Treason may be an understatement but it what they ALL should be charged with in a military court. When found guilty the punishment outlined by law should be applied. That being either a firing squad or hanging. These should be done in a public place so all can see what the payment is for turning against this GREAT COUNTRY America.

  5. Call upon every senator and congressman to “vacate the house speakers chair,” remove Piglosi and put in a conservative Republican speaker. Then bring articles of impeachment against Biden, Harris and the entire Biden cabinet! Get them all out before it is too late! And close the border to ALL comers, send the ones in detention facilities back ASAP!

  6. Piglosi, Every thing is funny Harris and and Does not know what world he is in Biden should all 3 be impeached and charged with child abuse and child theft. Those children are so much better off with their parents than spending even an hour in the pig pens they are living in right now. We The People should bring charges against those 3 and anyone else involved with these precious children. We should insist the children be returned home and the 3 brain dead inconsiderate filthy liars should be locked up in Gitmo with the rest of their friends. 2

  7. Democrats don’t worry about America, they worry about themselves and all the foreign country’s. American’s are struggling,since Dementia Joe became so-called president.They need to drop off all the illegals off at the White House and Dementia Joe’s house. Democrats are useless, need to start Deporting Democrat’s and illegals.

  8. Biden caused this mess!! Stopping the construction on the wall was a dinner bell to all these migrants AKA democrat voters.
    I am shocked and disappointed in the democrats for allowing this!
