Cruz: Border Probably Looks Secure to Harry Reid, Who Lives at the Ritz Carlton in D.C.
Cruz Invites Reid Down to the Border: Get Out of the Ritz-Carlton, and See for Yourself (National Review Online)
Ted Cruz (R., Texas) offered to help Harry Reid better understand the crisis on the border, and invited the Senate majority leader to leave his posh residency to see it for himself. Appearing on Fox News Sunday, Cruz lamented that Reid, who accused Republicans of holding the unaccompanied immigrant children for “ransom” earlier this week, often times “engage[s] in debates divorced from the facts and divorced from the reality.”
“Harry Reid lives in the Ritz-Carlton in Washington, D.C. and I’m sure from his perspective the border seems secure,” Cruz said. “I would invite Harry Reid to come down with me to Texas and see the border.”
