Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz appeared on Fox News to slam Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for refusing to visit America’s southern border because they want to cover up just how bad the crisis is down there.
“Look, the message has gone out our southern border is open, and anyone who wants to do harm, that’s a natural path to come in,” Cruz said.
“And you know, I found it curious that Kamala in that press conference said we’re enforcing our laws when they’re not. They are letting people go. It’s a giant turnstile where they’re letting them go. You are just showing now footage of the wall. They halted the construction of the wall, and they had these huge holes where they won’t put in the gates. They just leave it open,” he added.
“And let me step back for a second,” he continued.
“There is a reason Kamala Harris doesn’t want to go to the border. There’s a reason Joe Biden doesn’t want to go to the border. Because they know that if they go, the reporters will follow them, the TV cameras will follow them. Their strategy is simple. It’s trying to cover this up,” he said.
“You know, you are airing this on Fox, and I’m grateful that you are, but you know where they aren’t airing this?” he added.
He concluded: “On CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC. None of the corrupt corporate media is even acknowledging this exists. And that’s why Kamala and Joe are not going to the border, because they know if they go, it will drive the coverage, and they don’t have a solution to this crisis, so they are prepared for it to just get worse and worse and worse.”
Harris finally admitted on Monday what most people have known: she has no plans to visit the U.S.-Mexico border.
During a press conference in Guatemala, Harris said she does not plan to visit the southern border because it would just be a “grand gesture” as opposed to a genuine trip.
Then, Harris got embarrassed during a press conference with Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei.
Giammattei reminded Harris to put on a face mask as she walked away from the lectern – and she obeyed.
This trip comes as Harris has been dragged for months about her failure to visit the Southern border or Central American nations.
Florida Republican Sen. Rick Scott tore into Kamala Harris last month for her continued “failure” and refusal to visit the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border.
In a statement released to his website, Scott slammed Harris for only “flying over the border at 35,000 feet” while she met with other world leaders instead of addressing the Biden border crisis.
“While I welcome cooperation with Guatemala and Mexico, Biden and Harris have still not acknowledged the humanitarian and national security chaos their policies have created here in America,” Scott declared.
“They still refuse to actually go to the U.S. southern border, hear from our brave Customs and Border Protection agents and see the U.S. side of this crisis that their failed amnesty and open borders policies have created. It’s time for Harris and Biden to get down to the U.S. border and provide answers to the American people,” he concluded.
