Senator for Texas Ted Cruz has once again found himself at the mercy of the internet, as he posted a video of himself standing in the bushes on the US-Mexico border.
Stood on the banks of the Rio Grande river, Cruz claimed to be at the border to document the current immigration border crisis, which reportedly pales in comparison to the 2019 crisis under former President Donald Trump
In the clip, Cruz claimed: “On the other side of the river is Mexico. On the other side of the river, we have been listening to and seeing Cartel members. Human traffickers, right on the other side of the river.”
He added they were “yelling and taunting Americans. Taunting the border patrol”.
Cruz also attempted to blame the current crisis on President Joe Biden and used toxic anti-immigration metaphors, saying: “They know that under the current policy of the Biden administration, they can flood over.”
