Ted Cruz visited Del Rio, Texas, on September 16, where the city’s mayor said more than 10,000 people, whom Cruz described as “illegal aliens”, had gathered under a bridge which separates the US from Mexico.
Bruno Lozano, the mayor of Del Rio, posted a video claiming that the migrants at the Del Rio bridge are predominantly from Haiti, adding that he believes there is “potential for a terrorist attack.”
Cruz blamed the administration of Joe Biden for a build-up of numbers of people, claiming that a decision to halt deportation flights led to an increase from 700-1,000 people being the area to more than 10,000.
“Joe Biden could end this tomorrow by simply following the law and reinstating deportation flights back,” Cruz said.
