U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, spoke out today on the Senate floor regarding the need to secure our border.
He called the crisis on the border a humanitarian disaster of the president’s own making. “It is a disaster that is a direct consequence of President Obama’s lawlessness,” Cruz declared.
“Amnesty is unfolding before our very eyes,” Cruz also said. “And I would suggest the only response that will stop this humanitarian disaster is for President Obama to start enforcing the law, to stop promising amnesty, to stop refusing to enforce federal immigration law and finally to secure the borders. Indeed, I would call upon our colleagues in this body in both parties to come together and secure the border once and for all and to stop holding border security hostage for amnesty.”
