The Senator’s visit to the Congress Center followed his trip to the Texas border on Friday and Saturday with Senator John Cornyn and 17 other Republican senators.

Cruz and the Republicans blasted the Biden administration for overturning the Trump administration’s policy of keeping migrants in Mexico until their asylum claims can be heard.

President Biden has said he doesn’t want children to starve just south of the US border.

Cruz rejected the president’s comments.

“I think President Biden’s comments last week accusing Donald Trump of this immigration crisis are ludicrous. They are absolutely ridiculous. Last year we had the lowest illegal immigration rate in 45 years. The policies worked. “

Senator Cruz also discussed the five boys who escaped from the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center over the weekend.

He said authorities told him that once the boys got out they had cut back by about 70 feet.

HHS, which operates the emergency hospitality site at the Convention Center, did not return an email requesting comment.

But Dallas Police have confirmed they found five boys in a nearby 7-Eleven and sent them back to the convention center.

Senator Cruz said he was told the boys had been transferred to another facility.

He also criticized the president for not allowing news media to enter the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center and Border Patrol premises in Donna, Texas.
