Texas Senator Ted Cruz criticized President Biden's handling of the US-Mexico border, particularly the expiration of Title 42, which allowed the US to turn away migrants during the pandemic. Cruz blamed Biden for the situation, saying that the president's policies had caused the surge in migration, and that the expiration of Title 42 would exacerbate the problem.
Cruz also accused the Biden administration of being more concerned with the optics of the situation rather than addressing the root causes of migration. He called on the president to reinstate Title 42 and implement policies that would deter migrants from attempting to cross the border. Biden has faced criticism from both Republicans and Democrats over his handling of the border, which has seen a surge in migration in recent months.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, shared a pair of videos to Twitter late Thursday evening showing what he found during a visit near the Rio Grande along the United States-Mexico border in Brownsville, Texas.
In the first video, Cruz is standing next to a barbed wire barrier that runs along the border when he points toward Mexico, noting there are “over 22,000 illegal immigrants right across the river.”
