Beto Mocks Cruz visit to southern border “the only threat you face is unarmed children and families who are seeking asylum”

Friday, the Senate GOP tweeted:

1:00AM on our southern border.

18 Senators are here with Border Patrol on their night shift.

We saw the massive influx of migrant crossings.

Countless women + children.

We were heckled by cartels.

This is a humanitarian crisis.

And Joe Biden needs to address it immediately.

Former Presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke mocked the tweeted, writing “THANK GOD YOU SURVIVED THE HECKLING!”

Beto also fired back at Republican Senator Ted Cruz who shared footage from the Southern Border and wrote “I’m down at the Texas border along with 18 senators. We made the trip to see the crisis that is playing out.”

Beto replied:

You’re in a Border Patrol boat armed with machine guns.

The only threat you face is unarmed children and families who are seeking asylum (as well as the occasional heckler).

If you’re looking for a crisis to cosplay Senator for, I’m happy to point you in the right direction.
