Senator Ted Cruz exchanged a couple of a shots with a reporter who seemed to suggest that Republicans aren’t doing anything to help solve the border crisis.
During his visit in Texas on Thursday, a reporter asked the Republican about what members of his party are doing to fight the crisis.
“Let me ask you something, what rate of illegal immigration did we have in 2020? Do you know anything? I asked you a question,” Cruz quick responded to the reporter. “Do you know anything?”
“How long have you been in office?” a reporter weighed in.
“I’ve been in office 11 years,” Cruz answered. The reporter argued that the border crisis has been ongoing for several administrations.
“You don’t get to argue with me, you asked your question, you asked your question, you wanna hold a press conference you can do it over there,” Cruz fired back when the reporter cut him off.
“But hold on, I want to answer his question,” the senator said. “The talking point of the Democrats, which this media reporter happily parrots, is ‘gosh, the problem can’t be fixed.’ There’s one little problem with that, it is an utter and complete lie. In 2020, the last year of the Trump presidency, we had the lowest rate of illegal immigration in 45 years.”
