In an interview with Fox News, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) incinerated President Joe Biden for his disastrous policies on illegal immigration at the Southwest border and his slavish obedience toward radical-left politicians. 

“The border is one example of the extreme partisan failure of this administration, there are many,” Cruz said. “Joe Biden made the strange choice to pivot hard left, I think he is captive to AOC and Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders.”

The Texas senator blamed Biden for the catastrophic situation on the Southwest border.

“Last year we had the lowest illegal immigration in 45 years,” he claimed. “We had policies that worked. This year we have the worst illegal immigration in 20 years. That’s about as dramatic a shift as you can ask for, and it occurred when Joe Biden became president, and it occurred because of decisions he made.”

Cruz accused Biden and Harris of refusing to take responsibility for the border fiasco because “they can’t fix it.”

He then related how Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s solution to the illegal immigration debacle is to dismantle the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement “and have open borders.”

“That's the answer of the crazy left,” Cruz said, “And it’s why Biden and Kamala are trapped. Because there is no solution that stops this wave of humanity, this suffering, as long as they take their marching orders from the radical left.”
