Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) urged Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) and Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) to send illegal immigrants to three new liberal areas after DeSantis’ move to send illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard this week dominated national news.
Cruz pressed the governors to send illegal immigrants to Nantucket, Massachusetts; Palo Alto, California; and Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.
Cruz introduced the Stop the SURGE Act last year to force Democrat President Joe Biden to establish 13 new ports of entry in communities across the country and mandate that all illegal aliens encountered at Border Patrol Sectors in Texas be transferred to these new ports for processing.
The 13 new ports of entry would be in liberal areas, including 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.
“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 said 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.”
