Standing in the warm Arizona sun in the border town of Douglas, AZ on Friday afternoon, constitutional conservative Ted Cruz talked border security and illegal immigration, issues of top concern to Arizonans.
With the Arizona primary quickly approaching on Tuesday, Cruz, flanked by former Texas governor Rick Perry and local Arizona ranchers, lawmakers and law enforcement, challenged the contention by the Obama Regime that the southern U.S. border is already secure.
“I heard one rancher who told a story of the cartels — at least one of the smugglers — apparently monitoring her, finding where she keeps the key. And then this drug smuggler would, with some regularity come into her home use her key to unlock the front door, take a shower, make a meal, wash the dishes, go to bed, sleep, get up and leave and lock the door behind him.
How would you feel, having a drug smuggler monitoring you and entering and leaving your home with impunity?
Every rancher here describes break-ins they face as just a routine matter of living near the border.
President Obama tells us the border is secure. Well, I invite him to move the White House down to the southern border — let’s see how secure it is.“
Ted Cruz said that he had lunch with ranchers and did very little talking, but mostly listened to the horrific stories caused by an unsecured border.
