WATCH: Sen. Cruz on Fox & Friends: Joe and Kamala Have Zero Intentions to Solve the Border Crisis

"It is a complete and total abdication by the federal government. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are quite simply not doing their job and refusing to enforce the law, and they've created an unmitigated crisis at the border. A couple months ago I took 19 senators down to the border to see firsthand what was happening, and I've been to the border many times - it is worse than it has ever been. We had just, last month, over 180,000 people cross illegally, last month. We're on pace for 2 million people to cross illegally, and Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have zero intention of doing anything. That's why they won't go to the border. Kamala at this point it's almost like a comedy show. [...] She'll go everywhere except the border, because she's afraid of what's going on down there and they have no solutions."

"I think it is a very good thing that we're seeing states stepping up. We're glad to always welcome law enforcement whether from Florida or other states to come to Texas. The State of Texas has been leading when it comes to securing the border for a long time. I'm glad that we see the governor and state legislature investing and finishing the border wall, but for years we've had Texas Department of Public Safety officers patrolling the border. I've been out on them and I tell you, you know what's crazy? The Texas DPS has better equipment than the feds. Their boats are better, planes are better. I've been up in the DPS plane with incredible infrared technology where you can go eight miles away and up in the air, and there are two or three coyotes [...] when you have border patrol agents able to do their job, they can stop and intercept them."
