Ted Cruz Posts Shocking Video Of Border Crisis: ‘These Are The Biden Cages’
Republicans calls out Biden for border crisis
Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz posted a video of a cramped migrant camp along the southern border along with human traffickers taunting Border Patrol agents from the Rio Grande.
On Friday, Cruz visited the border with 18 other senators, calling out Joe Biden for his policies causing the crisis.
“These are the Biden cages,” the Texas senator captioned a video of a cramped migrant camp.
“Thousands of kids, in the midst of a pandemic, crammed in at 1500% capacity. This is just one of the ‘pods’ at Donna,” he said.
“There are SEVEN more, equally full.”

“We encountered human traffickers & cartel members tonight, yelling at us across the Rio Grande and preparing to cross,” Cruz captioned another video.
“We have been listening to and seeing cartel members, human traffickers right on the other side of the river, waving flashlights yelling and taunting Americans, taunting the Border Patrol because they know under the current policies of the Biden administration they can flood over here,” the senator detailed in a Twitter video, MRC reported.
“They’re getting paid $4-5000 a person to smuggle them into this country and our policies, when they smuggle them in, the Biden administration releases them.”
This month, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas admitted numbers were "overwhelming" but refused to call it a crisis.
Biden downplayed the surge on Thursday:
"It happens every single solitary year," he said about the numbers.
There is a significant increase in the number of people coming to the border in the winter months of January, February, March.
According to border patrol sources, human trafficking cartels are taking advantage of Biden's border policies and raking in as much as $14 million a day.
