"We need to put on a trial and put on the evidence of the people that are suffering and dying as a result of Joe Biden’s dereliction of duty," he says.

Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R) vowed to take action against Joe Biden’s DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas when Republicans take back Congress in the midterms.

In a Friday interview on Fox News’ “Hannity,” Cruz laid out how the Biden administration’s immigration policies have led to the collapse of the southern border and a wave of humanitarian catastrophes brought on by cartels trafficking humans and drugs.

“You know, on the banks of the Rio Grande just in the grass, you found wristbands which I found on the ground here, a couple of white ones. Here’s a pink one, here’s a green one, and they’re all color-coded. This is a yellow one,” Cruz said, holding up recovered wristbands.

“All of these are color coded for how many thousands of dollars the people wearing them owe the cartels. This yellow one is tiny. This was obviously worn by a child, it’s not broken the child’s hand was small enough to slip it off without it. This is a little child, a little girl, a little boy who is now in America and finds herself or himself owing drug cartels thousands of dollars.”

“And what happens next is that these kids the Biden administration ships them to every city in America, even if you don’t live on the southern border, you’re in a border town because there are kids in your town, there are 14, 15, 16 year old boys who owe the drug cartels thousands of dollars. They’re working for the drug cartels, committing crimes in your town,” he pointed out.

The Texas senator listed off the terrible toll of human life taken as a result of Biden’s open-border policies.

“And I got to say, Sean, the body bags are piling up,” Cruz said. “We saw just a few weeks ago, over 50 illegal immigrants in a tractor-trailer outside of San Antonio die of heat exposure, including kids as young as 13. Last year, we had a hundred thousand people die of drug overdoses with this fentanyl exposure explosion and the Joe Biden body bags keep getting worse and worse and worse.”

Cruz then pledged that Republicans will brings articles of impeachment against Mayorkas for facilitating the illegal human trafficking and compromising America’s sovereignty.

“I think November is going to be a red tidal wave. I think South Texas is going to turn red,” Cruz said. “And if and when Republicans retake Congress, I believe one of the very first priorities is that we should impeach Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.”

“I think the House will do that and the Senate needs to conduct a trial. We need to put on a trial and put on the evidence of the people that are suffering and dying as a result of Joe Biden’s dereliction of duty,” Cruz added.

In the meantime, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) last week granted the National Guard and Department of Public Safety the power to detain immigrants who illegally enter the U.S. between ports of entry and return them to the border. 

“While President Biden refuses to do his job and enforce the immigration laws enacted by Congress, the State of Texas is once again stepping up and taking unprecedented action to protect Americans and secure our southern border,” Abbott said last Thursday.
