As a steady stream of illegal immigrants from Mexico and South America - many of them children, wind up dumped in Arizona, Senator Ted Crus says that the current crisis is the direct result of the Obama White House to tighten up the nation's borders. "We need a president who is willing to uphold the law," Cruz declares.
Of the high numbers of children, who make the trek without their parents or adult figures of any kind, Senator Ted Cruz related an especially tragic story. "When I was down at the border, Border Patrol agents were telling me with horror that roughly 10 percent of apprehended people were unaccompanied minors."
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - "On issue after issue the Obama Administration has openly ignored, defied, and unilaterally tried to change the law," Cruz says.
"With respect to securing the border, the Obama Administration has handcuffed the courageous men and women who serve in Border Patrol. Morale in ICE is at an all-time low because the political operatives leading this Administration are preventing them from doing their job and upholding the law."
Starvation never takes a vacation --
Resources along the U.S. - Mexico border has grown overwhelmed. In response, U.S. Border Patrol has been releasing thousands of illegal immigrants onto U.S. soil each week.
Some of these released immigrants are criminals. Breitbart Texas says that more than 36,000 convicted criminal illegal aliens were released by U.S. authorities in 2013 alone.
Cruz described the current situation as a "humanitarian crisis" and is a "direct consequence" of the Obama Administration's actions and rhetoric surrounding illegal immigration.
"Just a few months before the last election the president illegally and unconstitutionally granted amnesty to some 800,000 people illegally. If the president wants to change federal immigration laws, the Constitution lays out a way to do so--you go and make your case to Congress and you convince Congress to change the laws...unfortunately for President Obama, following the Constitutional structure is apparently too cumbersome. One of the consequences were seeing on the border is a humanitarian crisis that is a direct consequence of Obama's lawlessness."
Granting amnesty to such large numbers of illegal immigrants, Cruz says prompted a "change in behavior." In Cruz's view, the recent spike in illegal immigration can be attributed to such actions by the Administration.
Of the high numbers of children, who make the trek without their parents or adult figures of any kind, Cruz related an especially tragic story. "When I was down at the border, Border Patrol agents were telling me with horror that roughly 10 percent of apprehended people were unaccompanied minors."
"The people who are bringing men, women, and children in illegally are not pleasant, happy, placid coyotes. These are criminal cartels. These are ruthless, brutal, nasty criminals. The idea that you have parents handing their teenage daughter or son over to a global criminal cartel is a humanitarian crisis. Untold numbers of these teens are facing assault, are facing a life of hell being turned over to drug kingpins.
"It is a direct consequence of the president's illegal actions," he said. "The parents think, 'If I send my child [to the U.S.], my child will have amnesty.' That's what the president of the U.S. has said. It is the exact opposite of a humane approach to immigration or to securing our borders."
