Sen. Cruz Issues Statement on Vice President Harris’ Upcoming Trip to El Paso

WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today released the following statement after Vice President Kamala Harris announced that after 92 days without a border visit, she will visit El Paso, Texas:

"Right now, the Biden-Harris Administration is functioning as the last mile of a human trafficking and illegal drug network that cartels are exploiting. The Biden-Harris Administration has repeatedly made reckless policy decisions leading to the massive surge of illegal immigrants flooding our southern border. It only took more than half a million illegal immigrants entering the United States, more than 400,000 pounds of drugs seized, 19 U.S. Senators traveling to the southern border, and 92 days after being appointed border crisis czar for Kamala Harris to visit the southern border. Maybe after her visit, the administration will reverse course and start enforcing the law and protecting our border."
