Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz applauded President Donald Trump’s efforts to keep illegal immigration in check at the U.S. – Mexican border.
According to The Blaze, Sen. Cruz announced on Thursday a huge drop in illegal immigration at his border since the beginning of Trump’s presidency.
While at the Conservative Political Action Conference, Sen. Cruz took the stage with conservative radio talk show host Mark Levin to talk about illegal immigration.
“Since Inauguration Day, illegal crossings have dropped 50 percent (in the Rio Grande section of the border),” Cruz said he had been told by the U.S. Border Patrol. “Oddly enough, you and I have not seen that on the six o’clock news.”
Sen. Cruz explained that he has firsthand experience of just how hard Border Patrol agents have been working to keep America safe. He explained that he has joined in on airborne patrols, a ride in a gunboat on the Rio Grande River and midnight patrols so he would know exactly what was going on.
Border Patrol also told Sen. Cruz that with a new administration in place, they are finally able to do their job well, as they have a president who finally supports them.
Watch the interview below. Sen. Cruz begins talking about the drop in illegal immigration starting at the 20:15 mark:
The Border Patrol told Cruz that it couldn’t be certain of the reason behind the drop in illegal immigration in that sector, but believed it was because it was understood that America had an administration that would “finally, finally, finally enforce the laws.”
If President Trump can do this much for national security in just 30 days, just imagine what he can do in the next four years.
