Ted Cruz slams Biden for jetting off to Saudi Arabia, ignoring border crisis: ‘The body bags are piling up’

As the crisis at the nation’s border with Mexico rises to the level of an “invasion,” Senator Ted Cruz blasted President Joe Biden for his “dereliction of duty” and called for the impeachment of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas the moment Republicans regain the House in November.

Appearing on Fox News’s “Hannity,” Cruz pointed to the accumulation of body bags at the border and laid them at the feet of the Biden administration.

“Sean, there’s a reason that Joe Biden hasn’t been to the border once as president,” Cruz said. “There’s a reason Kamala Harris has not been to the Rio Grande Valley once as vice president, even though she’s supposedly Border Czar. Because you can’t look at this horror and defend it.”

“Joe Biden found the time to go to Saudi Arabia, but not to the southern border, to the worst illegal immigration in 62 years,” he continued. “And I got to say, Sean, the body bags are piling up.”

Unlike the president, Senator Cruz did visit the border, and what he saw mortified him.

“Just past midnight this morning, I was on the border in the Rio Grande Valley and I saw firsthand the human misery caused by Joe Biden’s open borders,” he tweeted. “It’s not humane. It’s not compassion.”

Regarding the “body bags,” Cruz pointed to the tragic scene in a San Antonio tractor -railer and to the tens of thousands who have overdosed on the fentanyl that flows across the border.

“We saw just a few weeks ago over 50 illegal immigrants in a tractor-trailer outside of San Antonio die of heat exposure, including kids as young as 13,” he told Hannity. “Last year, we had 100,000 people die of drug overdoses with this fentanyl explosion. And the Joe Biden body bags keep getting worse and worse and worse.”

According to Cruz, “the only good thing of all of this horror is it’s opening people’s eyes.”

And that, he said, will be evident come the midterm elections.

“I think November is going to be a red tidal wave,” he predicted. “I think South Texas is going to turn red.”

“And if and when Republicans retake Congress, I believe one of the very first priorities is that we should impeach Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas,” he said. “I think the House will do that.”

“And the Senate needs to conduct a trial,” he stated. “We need to put on a trial, and put on the evidence of the people [who] are suffering and dying as a result of Joe Biden’s dereliction of duty.”

And Cruz isn’t the only one horrified by the crisis at the border.

As American Wire previously reported, earlier this month, Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick compared the situation to Pearl Harbor.

“We’re being attacked just as we were during Pearl Harbor,” Patrick told Fox News. “This is an attack on the American public. It’s an attack on our young people. It’s an attack on our border. And the president needs to stand up and fight back.”

“And if he doesn’t,” said Patrick, “he needs to step down.”
