U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) in an op-ed for Newsweek on April 27, 2021, detailed the deteriorating border crisis created by President Biden’s immigration policies. Cruz, along with a delegation of fellow representatives, recently witnessed firsthand the national security, humanitarian, and public health crises taking place on the southern U.S. border with Mexico.

In a press release with excepts from the column, Cruz said,

This crisis exists because of President Biden's policies. The first week Joe Biden was president, he did three things. Number one, he immediately halted construction of the border wall. Number two, he reinstated the failed Obama-era catch-and-release policy. Number three—and this was the most indefensible decision—he unlawfully ended the ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy, an international agreement President Trump negotiated with the government of Mexico whereby Mexico agreed that Central American immigrants who had crossed illegally through Mexico would stay in Mexico while their asylum cases were adjudicated in the United States. That agreement was a great victory, and it resulted in a massive drop in illegal immigration—so much so that in 2020, the United States experienced the lowest level of illegal immigration in 45 years. Now, because of Joe Biden's policies, we have the highest rate of illegal immigration in 20 years.
