Sen. Ted Cruz released a video of a woman he identified as a Biden administration staffer blocking him from recording at a migrant facility on “Sunday Morning Futures.

Sen. Cruz and Sen. John Cornyn led a group of GOP senators to Donna, Texas last week in response to the ongoing immigration surge. The senators toured a migrant holding facility in the city.

According to “Sunday Morning Futures” host Maria Bartiromo, a photographer joined the group of senators on the trip to the border, however, he was prohibited from entering the facility.

Cruz attempted to film the inside of the migrant facility before an alleged Biden staffer blocked him from recording.

“Please give dignity to the people. Please give dignity to the people. … Please respect the people, the rules,” the staffer told Cruz while blocking his camera with her face.

“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 to the staffer.

“Please respect the rules,” the staffer said to Cruz.

“The rules are arbitrary and they’re designed to keep the American people in the dark,” Cruz said.

“Is this dignity and respect?” he asked while pointing the camera at the overcrowded facility.

“This is not a zoo, sir,” she said. “Please don’t treat the people as such.”

“You’re right and this is a dangerous place. 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’re working for is responsible for these conditions.”

Cruz told Bartiromo that the border was ‘the worst he’s ever seen it.”

“The Donna facility is this giant tent city that they built. It’s massive,” Cruz said. “It’s designed to hold 1,000 people but under Covid restrictions, it’s capacity is 250. It right now has over 4,000 people in it. It’s at a 1,500% capacity.”

“In that facility, children are testing positive for Covid at roughly a 10% rate.”

“It’ a full blown crisis,” Cruz said.

The Biden administration currently has 16,000 unaccompanied minors in custody at the border.

“It’s inhumane, it’s unconscionable and it’s the direct result of political decisions that Joe Biden has made.”

NYC Mayor Adams’ budget cuts slash total number of police and education funds

“No city should be left to handle a national humanitarian crisis largely on its own, and without the significant and timely support we need from Washington, D.C., today’s budget will only be the beginning,” said  New York City Democratic Mayor Eric Adams about his decision to make budget cuts as a result of the overwhelming migrant crisis.

However, those who will suffer from budget cuts to the city’s services to offset the cost of dealing with the ever-increasing number of migrants are those that are in place to make the city better.

“The cuts will see police freeze hiring and bring the total number of police officers below 30,000. It would further slash the education budget by $1 billion over two years and affect a litany of other agencies” reports Just The News.

Albeit, Adams admitted: “In all my time in government, this is probably one of the most painful exercises I’ve gone through.” More than 110,000 migrants have arrived in New York City over the past year, including roughly 13,000 sent from Texas by GOP Governor Greg Abbott as part of his ongoing bussing plan to send new arrivals to the U.S. to sanctuary cities.

However, similar to other leaders of sanctuary cities, Adams is unwilling to put his money where his mouth is. In September, Adams warned that the crisis would “destroy New York City” and begged the federal government to pay for his mess.

“I’m gonna tell you something, New Yorkers, never in my life have I had a problem that I didn’t see an ending to. I don’t see an ending to this,” Adams said at the time. “The federal government needs to do its job. We need the federal government, the Congress members, the Senate and the president to do their job: close the borders,” said Adams’ advisor Ingrid Lewis Martin insisted in early October. “And until you close the borders, you need to come on with a full-on decompression strategy where you can take all of our migrants and move them through our 50 states.”
