Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) railed against the Democratic party for its open border policies. He appeared on the Ingraham Angle Wednesday to call them “the party of open borders.” While illegal migration surges, Democrat majority leader Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is calling deportations “hateful and xenophobic.” Meanwhile Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) demands that congress eliminate funding for Customs and Border Protection, Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the Department of Homeland Security.

First, the Texas Senator expressed his desire to do more for the southern border. Especially since the surge of more than 16,000 migrants arrived at the Del Rio International Bridge this past week alone. 

“The Senate could do a great deal, but we are not going to because there is not a single Democrat who is willing to work with us to secure the border,” Cruz explained. “Today’s Democrats have decided they are the party of open borders.”

However, when it comes to local Democrat lawmakers, they do not share the same sentiment. In fact, they would rather see a more secure border. Cruz said he’s visited many of these border towns. “You know, most of the local elected officials in south Texas are Democrats. That’s long been Democratic area of the state. I have to tell you, every elected Democrat I met with was so horrified by what is happening at the border, they said to me over and over again, they said, ‘Listen, if the Democratic Party is the party of open borders, count me out. I can’t support this.’ It is an unfolding disaster.”

Still, the Democrats in Congress aren’t hearing what their constituents in border states have to say about it. “And yet today’s Washington Democrats, there’s not a single one of them who cares,” Cruz said. “Joe Biden won’t go down to the border. Kamala Harris won’t go down to the border, the Rio Grande Valley, she won’t go to Del Rio. They insist these problems are not happening and this lawlessness — we are already at 1.2 million illegal immigrants, we’re on a path to 2 million illegal immigrants. And as long as Joe Biden and Kamala Harris refuse to apply the law, it will keep getting worse.”

Vice President Kamala Harris last visited El Paso, Texas in June.

Migrants sick of waiting, surge border after judge temporarily blocks Biden from revoking Title 42

Published

Border Patrol

Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Jason D. Owens tweeted recently, on May 17, that agents under his command apprehended 2,849 migrants last weekend. However, as migrants no longer want to wait for Title 42 to end, they have surged the border.

In a Breitbart exclusive, the media outlet reported the “number will be eclipsed as it appears the total could approach 4,000 this weekend.” Unfortunately, “the migrants did not appear to know or understand that the Title 42 will not end on Monday due to a federal court order. They expressed they were simply tired of waiting” the report adds.

Between April 1st and May 15 of this year, approximately 513,000 migrants illegally crossed the southern border.

On Friday, Louisiana Judge Robert Summerhays issued a preliminary injunction, and ordered to temporarily block the Biden Administration from revoking Title 42.

Breitbart notes “whether Title 42 ends or not, migrants say they are tired of waiting and surged across the Rio Grande into the Eagle Pass, Texas, area of operations. As many as 3,600 crossed so far this weekend — eclipsing last weekend’s total of just over 2,800 migrant apprehensions in the Del Rio Sector — according to a source operating within U.S. Customs and Border Protection.”

In just a couple of hours on Sunday evening, agents apprehended more than 700 migrants. Agents identified majority of the migrants as Honduran nationals, and some as Colombian.

One source told Breitbart resources were not available to transport migrants from the border to the processing station. It also appears the NGOs who regularly shelter the migrants are overloaded as migrants are reportedly being dropped off at an Eagle Pass Stripes convenience store.

“The crossings are not without danger. On Saturday, seven migrants were swept off their feet in the middle of the night forcing Border Patrol agents to jump into action to save their lives” Breitbart Texas reported. Those seven were lucky, whereas the bodies of three migrants were recovered at the Del Rio Sector.
