Last week, Senator Ted Cruz and 18 other senators visited the Texas-Mexico border to see what can be done about the escalating border crisis.
When they got there, the senator tried to take a video to show the truth of how the migrants are being treated at the border.
“I understand why the Biden team does not want cameras to be allowed in this location,” Cruz said before showing what the inside of the facility is like.
In the video, a female Biden administration staffer can be seen blocking him from recording the interior of a border facility.
“Please give dignity to the people. Please respect the people, the rules,” the staffer repeatedly tells Cruz as she continues to block his camera.
In the video, Cruz can be heard saying that the woman is a senior adviser who was hired just two weeks prior.
“Are you respecting the rights of these kids?” he asked.
The staffer continued as if she had not heard him: “This is not a zoo, sir, please respect the people. Please don’t treat the people like this.”
“You’re right. And this is a dangerous place,” Cruz said. “Your policies are unfortunately trying to hide them. I understand that you were instructed.”
“I respect them,” he continued. “I want to fix this situation.”
“We all want to fix this, sir; we don’t want this to happen anymore,” the staffer interjected.
“The administration you’re working for is responsible for these conditions,” said the senator.
Going back to her original statement, the staffer repeated, “Please respect the people.”
