Ted Cruz Posts Jaw-Dropping Footage of Kids Packed Like Sardines in Overcrowded Border Facility, Reminds Nation Who Is Responsible

Who built the cages, Joe?

Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas visited the country’s southern border on Friday, and also paid a visit to one of the Biden administration’s at-capacity child migrant detention facilities.

After taking office in January and loosening immigration policy, President Joe Biden has encouraged thousands upon thousands of people to the border. Sadly, many of those people are children.

Cruz ensured that those following him online saw exactly what he saw — which was a horrific display of people camped together only floors amid a pandemic.

Cruz took to Twitter to blame Biden for creating the unnecessary crisis. Sharing video and images of people crammed into a temporary overflow facility in Donna, Texas, the senator unleashed.

“These are the Biden cages. (Faces blurred.) Thousands of kids, in the midst of a pandemic, crammed in at 1500% capacity. This is just one of the “pods” at Donna. There are SEVEN more, equally full,” Cruz tweeted.

Cruz wasn’t finished there. He posted several other images online, which show the true magnitude of the border crisis — a crisis created by Biden’s undercutting of border security and immigration policies.

In one post, Cruz said the Biden administration is actively helping illegal border crossers by guiding them toward the border.

“The Biden Admin immediately halted building the wall, leaving major gaps through which hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants are streaming. Instead, Biden admin is putting signs like this one (about 100 yards from the Rio Grande) directing illegal immigrants where to go,” he wrote.

Cruz also addressed reporters Friday after he and other senators toured the area. Cruz had words for Biden that were anything but kind.



“The Donna Facility is a giant tent city … We saw cages after cages after cages of little girls and little boys lying side by side, touching each other, covered with reflective emergency blankets. There was no 6-foot space. There was no 3-foot. There wasn’t a 3-inch space,” Cruz said.

“This is inhumane, it is wrong and it is the direct consequence of policy decisions by the Biden administration to stop building the wall, to return to ‘catch and release’ and end to the stay in Mexico policy,” he added of the federal government forcing COVID-positive migrants to stay together in close quarters.

Despite a media blackout, we’re finally getting a look at the inhumane conditions these young victims of drug cartel business and Democratic policies are living through — thanks in large part to Cruz and other GOP lawmakers.

Do you think Democrats will ever call the border crisis what it is?

These kids didn’t come here, most of them, on their own accord. But the Biden administration seems to have few hiccups about finding cramped places to shamelessly stash them.

The president continues to encourage more migrants to come every day, as he refuses to come out and say “enough.”
