Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and a delegation of his Republican colleagues are headed to the southern border to shine a light on the Biden border crisis.
“Tomorrow night, 18 senators are going to be traveling down to the southern border. Traveling down to Texas to see first hand the crisis that is unfolding,” Cruz stated. “To see first hand the over 100,000 illegal immigrants who were detained last month.”
The group of lawmakers took aim at Joe Biden’s disastrous policies, which have led to illegal immigrants flooding the border and resulted in underage migrants being held in cramped facilities.
Cruz also called out efforts by the Democrat administration to keep the mainstream media in the dark about what is really going on under Biden’s watch.
“We’re traveling down there, 18 of us, but something is going to be different on this border trip from previous trips to the border, which is our friends in the media right now are not allowed to come,” Cruz said. “You’ve been invited. We want you to come. We want the media to be there. We want the American people to see what’s happening, but Joe Biden doesn’t want you to see that.”
Cruz also pointed out under three previous administrations, the media has been allowed to document and show the nation what is happening.
✔️The Clinton admin allowed media at the border.
✔️The Bush admin allowed media at the border.
✔️The Obama admin allowed media at the border.
✔️The Trump admin allowed media at the border.

“The Biden administration has issued a gag order, a blackout order, that the media cannot come. For four years, we heard Democrats going on and on about kids in cages,” Cruz stated. “Well, Joe Biden desperately does not want you to see the Biden cages.”
Biden’s media blackout is proving the White House is terrified of showing the American people the truth.
