Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) blasted the immigration plan President Biden has put in place, labeling it as the “most radical immigration plan any administration has ever proposed in history.”
His comments coincide with a federal judge blocking the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) from putting a halt to deportations, seen as a blow to the Biden administration, reported Breitbart News.
“They have proposed allowing every single person who was deported from this country for the last four years to come back. And by the way,” Cruz explained, “They don’t make exceptions for criminals, for murderers, for rapists. I mean, it is utterly bizarre to have a federal administration refusing to enforce the law against violent criminals.”
Cruz noted, “And frankly, it makes, it makes our country more dangerous …”
“We are a nation of immigrants and there are wonderful people who come here and come here legally. There’s a right way to come,” the Texas senator said.
“But today’s Democratic Party has been radicalized where they’re you know, they’re not even willing to enforce the law against violent criminals who are committing horrific crimes,” he said.
No sooner had Biden taken over the White House, then a memo was sent out to stop most deportations of illegal aliens for the next 100 days. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton then filed a lawsuit asking for a preliminary injunction on the “unlawful” deportation halt.
The injunction was granted on Wednesday by the U.S. District Judge Drew B. Tipton, with the case having to be resolved by the higher courts.
Dale Wilcox with the Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) remarked Tipton’s block of the deportation halt “should hold up on appeal” and said Biden’s memo is a “bizarre and sinister attempt to shutter our entire immigration law enforcement system.”
Meanwhile, National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd denied Psaki’s on children in cages remarks on Monday, as reported by Breitbart. “Today, Jen Psaki said the administration could not hold the children in other locations due to the Covid protocols including social distancing,” Judd said, “but what she didn’t tell the media was that the children in [Border Patrol’s] custody were being held in conditions that have nearly no way to social distance.”
“The hypocrisy from the left and the mainstream media indeed shows they care nothing for the children they used as pawns to attack President Trump,” Judd said. “They are being held in the same locations they accused the Trump administration of inhuman acts when they said he was holding ‘kids in cages.’”
