Senator Ted Cruz was with a congressional delegation visiting a southern border facility.
The pictures and videos showed everything from cartels at the river to horrible conditions at border facilities.
Eighteen Senators went to visit the border that is in crisis, meanwhile Biden went home to Delaware for the weekend.
1:00AM on our southern border.
18 Senators are here with Border Patrol on their night shift.
We saw the massive influx of migrant crossings.
Countless women + children.
We were heckled by cartels.
This is a humanitarian crisis.
And Joe Biden needs to address it immediately. pic.twitter.com/7GfRb2cc1C

While inside the Donna, Texas, facility Biden sent a staffer to try and prevent Cruz from filming the fact that 700 people were crammed in a pod meant to hold 80 people.
The staffer yells at Cruz and says, “Please give dignity to the people, please give dignity to the people. Please respect the people, the rules.”
“So you work for the commissioner, you’re a senior adviser, you were hired two weeks ago and you’re instructed to ask us to not have any pictures taken here because the political leadership at DHS does not want the American people to know it,” Cruz said.
“Please don’t treat the people as such,” the staffer responded.
“Your policies are unfortunately trying to hide them. I understand that you were instructed,” Cruz said. “I respect them, and I want to fix this situation, and the administration that you work for is responsible for these conditions.”
How far is Joe Biden going to stop the American people from seeing inside the Donna CBP facility?
Biden sent a political operative from DC to block our cameras and even threatened another senator to obstruct legitimate congressional oversight. pic.twitter.com/vHT2U7Nh1z

During a segment on Fox News Cruz explained just how bad the border crisis is.
“The Donna facility where that video you just showed was taken, the Donna facility is this giant tent city that they’ve built. It’s massive. It’s designed to hold a thousand people but under Covid restrictions, its capacity is 250. It right now has over 4,000 people in it. It is at a 1,500% capacity and that meant you saw in these cages children, little boys and little girls, side by side, they’re not 6-feet apart,” Cruz said on Sunday.
