Republican Senator Ted Cruz has unloaded on President Biden, New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham, and New York City Mayor Eric Adams. He made his comments in a new episode of his podcast as he touched on current events across the U.S.
During the episode, Cruz touched on the 9/11 anniversary, the Biden administration reportedly considering keeping illegal aliens in Texas, and New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham unilaterally suspending open and concealed carry laws in her state.
Cruz talked about the vulnerability on the nation’s southern border, noting that numerous individuals on the terror watch list have been apprehended there.
The open border is “also an invitation to terrorists,” Cruz said. “If you’re the next planner of 9/11, it’s obvious where you go, you go to Mexico. And you come right across. And Joe Biden, and the idiots in his administration, will fly you to wherever you want to go in this country, and you can carry out your terror attack. And sadly, every day that we have an open border under Joe Biden and the Democrats, the odds of another major attack in this country, a major terror attack go up systematically, they are exposing us. They are exposing vulnerabilities whether it is someone trying to hijack an airplane or whether it is a suicide bomber in a mall, or an amusement park, or a concert, or what have you.”
He also addressed a report from the Washington Free Beacon that said the Biden administration was considering using ankle monitors to prevent illegal immigrants from leaving Texas.
“Look, this is utter and complete garbage. It is nakedly political. It is blatantly illegal,” Cruz said. “There is no other explanation for this. The reason they want to target Texas is because they hate Texas, because Texas is red. Listen, 7.2 million people have crossed illegally under Joe Biden, is he really proposing let’s keep all 7.2 million in Texas? We got 30 million Texans. Yeah, he wants to take us to 37 million Texans and have a quarter of the state be illegal and he wants to do that so that he doesn’t upset Democrats in blue states. This is, it is blatantly illegal. And it is it is illegality piled on illegality. Look, current federal law requires that he deport these people. He’s defying federal law.”
He took a shot at Mayor Eric Adams for blaming Texas Governor Greg Abbott for the illegal immigration crisis that has spread to his city.
“Newsflash, the border crisis was not caused by Governor Greg Abbott. You know who the border crisis was caused by? Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Chuck Schumer. Nancy Pelosi,” Cruz said. “You know, if Eric Adams doesn’t like this border crisis, he ought to pick up the phone and call someone who lives in Manhattan. His name is Charles Schumer. And Chuck Schumer has defended Joe Biden’s open borders every single day for the last two and a half years. He’s blocked every effort to secure the border. He’s blocked every effort to build the wall. He’s blocked every effort to deport illegal immigrants. He’s blocked every effort to reinstate the remain-in-Mexico policy. He’s blocked every effort to pass Kate’s law, which I introduced to lock up and have mandatory minimum sentences for violent criminals who repeatedly reenter this country. Eric Adams’ party created this problem, and they didn’t just create it in the past. They are creating it today. And they intend to create it tomorrow.”
