After mentioning the specific issue of the law and the accusatory voices for “trafficking in persons” or “kidnapping” that are raised among Democrats and the press, the presenter asked Cruz about the situation “from a legal point of view.”
“Right now, the biggest human trafficker on the face of the planet is Joseph Robinette Biden Jr.” he said after criticizing the Justice Department. “He has transported hundreds of thousands, millions of illegal immigrants, putting many of them in red states,” where according to Cruz “these are not the concerns of the rich, but the concerns of the little ones.”
Likewise, he denounced the “hypocrisy” of Democratic governors and mayors who complain loudly about immigrants arriving in their cities and states, who only consider that it is a “crisis when it is the millionaires who suffer the inconvenience”
“Democrats didn’t think it was a humanitarian crisis when we removed more than 50 bodies and body bags from a truck in Texas of illegal immigrants who died because smugglers allowed them to die from heat exposure,” Cruz said, referring to what was reported. believes it is one of the worst tragedies involving migrants in the US in recent years.
