Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) launched a tirade against President Joe Biden and Democrats on Tuesday, saying they were attempting to play 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 addressed the ongoing crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border, which he argued “Joe Biden doesn’t give a damn” about.
“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. “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 rant, saying he hadn’t seen the Texas Senator get quite that worked up in a very long time. Cruz explained that, although Biden had not been to the border, and seen the women and children who were being raped and trafficked by coyotes and cartels, he had.
He concluded by noting that when illegal immigrants were flown to Martha’s Vineyard, authorities were preparing to “deport” them to a military base within 24 hours, and had done so within 48, and wondered if 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.”
