Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) unleashed a tirade aimed at President Joe Biden and Democrats on Tuesday, accusing them of playing the race card at the southern border because it was the only card they had.
Cruz joined Fox News host Jesse Watters for the Tuesday broadcast of “Jesse Watters Primetime,” and he addressed the ongoing crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border — an issue about which he said “Joe Biden doesn’t give a damn.”
Can the 4.5 MILLION illegal aliens who’ve crossed the border under Biden be sent back?
Or is that just for rich Leftists on Martha’s Vineyard who the only time they're willing to see an immigrant is if they want someone to mow their damn lawn?
That’s the hypocrisy of the Left! pic.twitter.com/XXAW2a4bAr

“Look, I know that Democrats have one card in their entire deck, and it’s the race card. They scream racist, racist, racist,” Cruz began.
“But you know what, President Obama, you know what, President Biden? You know what’s racist?” Cruz asked. “When Joe Biden sits by and lets four and a half million people cross into this country illegally and he doesn’t care. You know what’s racist? When Joe Biden can’t be bothered to go down to the border and see the little girls and little boys being sexually assaulted by international cartels.”
“You know what’s racist?” Cruz continued without stopping to take a breath. “When Joe Biden doesn’t care about the Hispanic women being raped by the cartels. You know what’s racist? When Biden doesn’t care about the dead bodies that the cartels leave on Texas farms and ranches across the southern border. You know what’s racist? That Biden will do nothing to stop the 100,000 fentanyl overdoses that happened last year.”
“That is grotesque — and you know what’s racist?” Cruz added one more example. “When all the lily-white folks on Martha’s Vineyard sit back and say, ‘No, no, no, we don’t want any illegal immigrants here. Send them to South Texas, they can deal with it.’ That is grotesque, it’s offensive, and even to this day Joe Biden doesn’t give a damn.”
Watters responded to Cruz’s lengthy rant by saying he hadn’t seen the Texas Senator get quite that worked up in a very long time — and Cruz explained that even though Biden had not been to the border and seen firsthand the women and children who were being raped and trafficked by coyotes and cartels, he had.
Cruz concluded by noting that when the illegal immigrants were flown into Martha’s Vineyard, authorities there had moved to “deport” them to a military base within 24 hours — and he wondered whether Texas could do the same.
“Can we send them back?” he asked. “Oh, no, no, no, that’s just for rich billionaire leftists who the only time they’re willing to see an immigrant is if they want someone to mow their damn lawn.”
