Ted Cruz Suggests Three New Illegal Immigrant Bussing Destinations

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has sent out three tweets, tagging Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R), with suggestions of three new liberal areas to transport illegal immigrants to.

After Abbott began bussing illegal immigrants to the Democrat-run “sanctuary cities” of Washington, D.C., New York City and Chicago, DeSantis decided to join in on the action — sending two planes of illegals to Martha’s Vineyard, the elites’ vacation island off the coast of Massachusetts. The Florida governor’s move dominated national news, leading to outrage from the left, who had already been attacking Abbott for his actions.

Now, Cruz has decided to suggest more possible destinations, pushing the governors to send illegals to Nantucket, Massachusetts; Palo Alto, California and Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.

The Texas senator appeared to choose these locations for a reason, as they were also mentioned in legislation he proposed last year. The Stop the SURGE Act would have forced President Joe Biden to establish 13 new ports of entry, all located in liberal areas across the country. The bill would mandate that all illegal immigrants encountered at Border Patrol sectors in Texas be transferred to these newly established ports for processing.

The new ports of entry include the Democrat-run areas of “Block Island, Rhode Island; Greenwich, Connecticut; Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts; Cambridge, Massachusetts; Governors Island, New York; Rehoboth Beach, Delaware; Nantucket, Massachusetts; Newport, Rhode Island; Scarsdale, New York; Palo Alto, California; Yountville, California; St. Helena, California; and North Hero, Vermont,” according to reporting from The Daily Wire.

“I am introducing this crucial legislation to alleviate the massive overload at the southern border by establishing new ports of entry in Democrat-led communities such as North Hero, Vermont, where Bernie Sanders spends his summers, and Martha’s Vineyard, where Democrat elites host their cocktail parties,” Cruz stated at the time. “If Washington Democrats had to endure even a fraction of the suffering South Texas families, farmers, ranchers, and small businesses have had to face, our nation’s immigration laws would be enforced, the wall would be built, and the Remain in Mexico policy would be re-implemented.”

“My Democrat colleagues have hosted hearing after hearing on amnesty and federalizing elections while completely ignoring the crisis at our southern border,” the Texas senator added. “From my time this year on the ground in Laredo and Del Rio, it is abundantly clear that President Biden has all but abandoned our border patrol agents and processing facilities, and left Texas communities to fend for themselves. President Biden and Democrats need to step up to defend our southern border and support our heroic Customs and Border Protection officials.”

Cruz also appeared on Fox News’ “Hannity” earlier this week to discuss the border crisis, saying that DeSantis’ move to send 50 illegals to Martha’s Vineyard exposed Democrats as being “screaming hypocrites.”

“You know, the Democrats did not think it was a humanitarian crisis when we pulled over 50 bodies in body bags out of a truck in Texas of illegal immigrants who died because the smugglers let them die of heat exposure,” he said. “And yet, suddenly 50 illegal immigrants show up in lily white Martha’s Vineyard, where rich liberals and billionaires sip Chardonnay, and it is — it is World War II.”
