Ted Cruz Again Opposes Bipartisan Border Security Bill, Marking Three Times This Year Alone He’s Opposed Funding to Address the Border Crisis

DALLAS — Today Ted Cruz once again voted against a bipartisan bill that would help secure the border and surge resources to border communities. Congressman Colin Allred has championed this bill and joined a Congressional task force to push for passage and other common-sense reforms to fix the broken immigration system. 

The bipartisan Senate bill is endorsed by a diverse group of stakeholders, including the National Border Patrol Council, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the National Association of Manufacturers and the U.S. Conference of Mayors.

“Our Texas border communities cannot afford six more years of Ted Cruz,” said Allred. “We all know Ted Cruz will never be part of a solution because he would rather use these communities as a political backdrop. I will work with both parties to deliver real results that secure our border, stop the flow of deadly fentanyl, help our border communities and ensure we can meet the needs of our economy.”

Cruz voted against this package in February and stated he opposed it because of the politics. Additionally, he voted against a separate government funding package that was signed into law, which included millions in funding to hire a record 22,000 border patrol agents.
