Biden invites illegals to come but did not let 10K immigrants in: Ted Cruz shows border crisis
Texas Senator Ted Cruz went straight to Del Rio, where 10,000 illegal migrants have been abandoned. In the morning, the number of refugees skyrocketed to 8 thousand people, but now the threat of a pandemic, the inability to accept such a number of migrants, forced Texas to close its borders with Mexico.
SEN. TED CRUZ: The answer is simple that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are absolute hypocrites, those 10,000 people there, do you know how many Border Patrol has tested? Zero, not one. They don't have the capacity to do that.
Let me tell you something stunning that I learned tonight about why this happened because this is a manmade crisis. Eight days ago on September 8th, under that same bridge, there were between 700 and 1,000. That was what was coming a day, about 1,000, sometimes 1,100, but it would range between 700-1,100.
Then 8 ago, on September 8th, the Biden administration made a political decision. They announced that they were no longer going to fly deportation flights back to Haiti. 85% of the people under there are from Haiti. They're fleeing from Haiti. They announced they weren't going back. There were about 900 Haitians who were getting ready to board the flights when the political operatives in Washington canceled the flights. Well, what happened? Those 900 people, they all pulled out their cell phones and they e-mailed their friends and they e-mailed their families and they texted their friends and their families.
That was 8 days ago on September 8th. Today, it's September 16th, 8 days later, and 700 people has grown to 10,500 because the word has gone out.
If you're from Haiti, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have said we have open borders, come to Del Rio and they will let you in.
I am on the ground in Del Rio, Texas tonight. As of this moment, there are 10,503 illegal aliens under the Del Rio International Bridge.— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) September 17, 2021
