Cruz introduces bill to bring immigrant processing centers ‘where Democrat elites host their cocktail parties’

Sen. Ted Cruz has been vocal critic of Biden administration’s handling of crisis at southern border

Senator Ted Cruz, R-Texas, introduced a bill to bring processing centers for illegal immigrants to where the “Democrat elites host their cocktail parties.”

Fox News exclusively obtained a press release announcing Cruz’s new bill, the Stop the Surge of Unsafe Rio Grande Encampments (SURGE) Act.

Cruz blasted President Biden and his administration for having “willingly surrendered the United States’ southern border to dangerous criminal cartels” without any “thought given to the South Texas border communities like McAllen and Del Rio,” which are facing the brunt of the border crisis.

“That’s why today I am introducing this crucial legislation to alleviate the massive overload at the southern border by establishing new ports of entry in Democrat-led communities such as North Hero, Vermont, where Bernie Sanders spends his summers, and Martha’s Vineyard, where Democrat elites host their cocktail parties,” Cruz wrote.

Cruz Slams Trump on Amnesty: ‘Inconsistent with the Promises We Made’

Sen. Ted Cruz is taking a stand against President Donald Trump’s proposal to allow 700,000 ‘dreamer’ illegal immigrants win the huge prize of American citizenship.

According to Bloomberg, Cruz told reporters Thursday that:

“I do not believe we should be granting a path to citizenship to anybody here illegally,” the Texas Republican said in the Capitol. “Doing so is inconsistent with the promises we made to the men and women who elected us” …

“For some reason that to me is utterly inexplicable, we see Republicans falling all over themselves to gallop to the left of Obama in a way that is contrary to the promises made to the voters who elected us,” Cruz said. “We need to honor the promises we made. And that is what I am energetically urging my colleagues to do.”

The pushback came after Trump casually suggested Wednesday night that he could agree to Democrats’ demand that the 700,000 illegals enrolled in the ‘DACA’ amnesty could have citizenship. Trump said to reporters:

We’re going to morph into it, it’s going to happen. Over a period of 10 to 12 years, somebody does a great job, they’ve worked hard.

Trump’s amnesty proposal is far smaller than the now-dead “Gang of Six” plan by GOP Sens. Lindsey Graham, Jeff Flake, and Cory Gardner. That giveaway would have provided citizenship to 3.25 million illegals and work-permits to their roughly 4.75 million parents. The 8 million number was announced by White House press secretary Hogan Gidley. The gang’s plan would also have allowed the 3.25 million migrants to import additional migrants as chain-migration relatives.

Ted Cruz Suggests U.S. Military Response to Mexican Cartels

U.S. Senator Ted Cruz suggested that the U.S. military should be used against Mexican transnational criminal groups (cartels). The statements were made during a one-on-one interview with the senator at the end of May at the Bayer Museum of Agriculture in Lubbock, Texas. The senator made clear that he was not suggesting unilateral U.S. military action in Mexico, but rather a cooperative effort, as seen in Colombia.

The portion of the interview pertaining to Mexican cartels follows.

BRANDON DARBY: One of the things that’s very interesting about Texas on the border, as you know, there’s nine sectors on the Southwest Border, five of which are in Texas. Part of the problem that we have in Texas is that two of the most brutal criminal groups south of the border, which actually operate north of the border as well, as you know, are Los Zetas and the Gulf Cartel. But unlike most of the other criminal organizations in Mexico along our border, which would be Sinaloa, Juarez Cartel, Tijuana Cartel. Los Zetas and the Gulf Cartel are extremely brutal. In fact, the videos they release resemble ISIS videos. We try to challenge them as much as possible, but what more could the U.S. do? There’s talk of declaring certain factions as foreign terror organizations so you could appropriately go after the money and the politicians. Again, Tamaulipas, a state below Texas, the last two governors are fugitives from U.S. justice for being surrogates of the Gulf Cartel. Several of the governors in Coahuila are now in trouble because they were Los Zetas. What more could the U.S. do to to challenge Mexican transnational criminal groups who operate in our country, who kill our kids? What could we do to challenge them?

SEN. TED CRUZ: We could do a great deal more. What has happened in the last decade with Mexican drug cartels has been nothing short of tragic. Mexico is a great and wonderful country. The Mexican people are wonderful people. Growing up in Texas, we spent a great deal of time in Mexico. Most Texans have long and deep commitments to Mexico. Whether family ties, or business ties, or cultural ties. Where Texans vacation in Mexico. Mexicans vacation in Texas.

Ted Cruz Calls for $14 Billion Seized from ‘El Chapo’ to Fund Border Wall

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) introduced a bill calling for the use of $14 billion seized from cartel drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman to be used to pay for the President’s border wall between the U.S. and Mexico.

“Fourteen billion dollars will go a long way toward building a wall that will keep Americans safe and hinder the illegal flow of drugs, weapons, and individuals across our southern border,” Senator Cruz stated, according to a statement obtained by Breitbart Texas from the senator’s office. “Ensuring the safety and security of Texans is one of my top priorities.”

The Texas senator said that leveraging criminally forfeited assets from El Chapo and other Mexican cartel members and drug dealers can “offset the wall’s cost and make meaningful progress toward achieving President Trump’s stated border security objectives.”

Senator Cruz introduced the Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order (EL CHAPO) Act on Tuesday. “The U.S. Government is currently seeking the criminal forfeiture of more than $14 billion in drug proceeds and illicit profits from El Chapo, the former leader of the Sinaloa drug cartel who was recently extradited to the U.S. to face criminal prosecution for numerous alleged drug-related crimes, including conspiracy to commit murder and money laundering,” Cruz stated.

Sarah Palin to Ted Cruz: Delete Your Career (Video)

In a statement to Breitbart News, former Alaska Governor and 2008 Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin weighed in on Senator Ted Cruz’s refusal to honor his pledge and endorse the GOP nominee Donald Trump.

Palin, whose endorsement of Cruz’s long-shot Senate bid in 2012 was credited by Cruz himself as the reason why he won the race that launched his national political career, gave the following statement to Breitbart after delegates booed Cruz off the stage at the Republican National Convention on Wednesday night:

Turns out Ted Cruz’s partner, Carly Fiorina, had a more graceful exit from the political stage than he had.

Cruz’s broken pledge to support the will of the people tonight was one of those career-ending “read my lips” moments. I guarantee American voters took notice and felt more unsettling confirmation as to why we don’t much like typical politicians because they campaign one way, but act out another way. That kind of political status quo has got to go because it got us into the mess we’re in with America’s bankrupt budgets and ramped up security threats.

Powerful support for Trump’s Muslim ban

Phyllis Schlafly: ‘Overwhelming majority of convicted terrorists came as immigrants, refugees’

When an ISIS-supporting Muslim named Omar Mateen massacred 49 people at a nightclub in Orlando on June 12, Donald Trump reminded Americans that he is still the only political candidate to support a pause in the massive flow of Muslims entering the United States. Trump made his proposal last December after another ISIS-supporting Muslim massacred 14 people at an office Christmas party in San Bernardino, California.

Trump said his Muslim ban would be temporary.

“Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses,” he said, “our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in jihad.”

Trump’s reasonable, commonsense proposal was immediately condemned or disavowed by other presidential candidates in both parties. Even Sen. Ted Cruz said he disagreed with it, though he didn’t say why.

Now that Cruz has returned to his “day job” as U.S. senator from Texas, he recently co-authored a new report with Sen. Jeff Sessions that provides powerful support for Trump’s position. The report issued June 22 shows that the overwhelming majority of convicted terrorists came into our country as immigrants or refugees from Muslim countries.

Cruz and Sessions were able to determine the birthplace of 451 of the 580 individuals who were convicted of terrorism since the 9/11 attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. Some 380 of the 451, or 84 percent, of these terrorists, were foreign born – and most of them came from Muslim-majority countries such Pakistan, Egypt, Lebanon, Yemen, Somalia, Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Power of Media Manipulation (Video)

In this week’s Analysis Behind the News video, JBS Vice President of Communications Bill Hahn discusses the power of the media’s manipulation. Specifically, Hahn addresses the Boston Globe’s hyperbolic portrayal of a hypothetical Donald Trump presidency in 2017 and another editorial article describing a potential Ted Cruz administration as “apocalyptic.” With the editorial boards and departments of so many mainstream media outlets being heavily left-wing what effect does this have on the “unbiased news” they purport to deliver?

Victims of Alien Crime: Cruz Commits ‘Treason’ in Alliance with Kasich

Certain American victims of illegal alien crime say Sen. Ted Cruz should be “charged with treason” for his decision to team up with pro-amnesty Governor John Kasich in order to nullify the votes of Donald Trump supporters.

“They both ought to be charged with treason,” said Billy Inman, whose son 16-year-old Dustin was murdered while he and his family were on their way to celebrate an early Father’s Day family fishing trip. An illegal alien rear-ended the family’s vehicle at over 60 mph. His son’s murderer is still roaming free.

“Their teaming up should ruin Ted Cruz’s career,” said Cruz constituent Laura Wilkerson whose 18-year-old son Joshua was tied up, beaten, strangled, set on fire, and tortured to death by his illegal alien classmate.

“Who do they think they are trying to silence us?” asked Mary Ann Mendoza, whose 32-year-old son, Sgt. Brandon Mendoza, was murdered by a drunk illegal alien who had been driving the wrong way down a freeway with a blood alcohol level three times the legal limit.

“If Republicans wanted either Cruz or Kasich as a candidate, they would be voting for them,” Mendoza said. Instead “the two of them are trying to bully their OWN mindset on us. Republican voters are voting for the person they feel will make our country great again. Something like this has got to make people wonder, why are these career politicians so afraid of Mr. Trump?”
