Ted Cruz is introducing a bill which would locate immigration processing centers in liberal strongholds like Martha’s Vineyard.
The point Cruz is making here is a valid one. Democrats never feel the pain their policies inflict on other parts of the country.
Do you think anyone on Martha’s Vineyard is feeling the effects of the border crisis? Not likely.
FOX News reports:
Cruz introduces bill to bring immigrant processing centers ‘where Democrat elites host their cocktail parties’
Senator Ted Cruz, R-Texas, introduced a bill to bring processing centers for illegal immigrants to where the “Democrat elites host their cocktail parties.”
Fox News exclusively obtained a press release announcing Cruz’s new bill, the Stop the Surge of Unsafe Rio Grande Encampments (SURGE) Act.
Cruz blasted President Biden and his administration for having “willingly surrendered the United States’ southern border to dangerous criminal cartels” without any “thought given to the South Texas border communities like McAllen and Del Rio,” which are facing the brunt of the border crisis.
“That’s why today 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 wrote.
The Texas senator remarked that if D.C. Democrats “had to endure even a fraction of the suffering” facing the “families, ranchers, and small businesses” in South Texas, U.S. “immigration laws would be enforced, the wall would be built, and the Remain in Mexico policy would be re-implemented.”
Cruz talked about this on Hannity last night. Watch:

He is absolutely right. Let’s see how Democrats like it when this problem affects them directly.
