CRUZ: America is Great, Columbus Discovering New World was Good, George Washington is a Hero

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.01.21

Senator Ted Cruz addressed a crowd of conservative voters Monday when he vowed to “speak the truth,” telling the audience “America is great” and Christopher Columbus discovering the New World was a “good thing.”

“I’m going to commit a radical act. I’m going to speak the truth. America is great. […] Christopher Columbus discovering America was a good thing. George Washington was an extraordinary national hero,” said the Texas Senator.


Cruz made national headlines last month when he introduced new legislation that would relocate illegal migrants to Democrat-controlled precincts like Martha’s Vineyard.

“As Texas Border Patrol Sectors are flooded with historic numbers of illegal aliens pouring into the country, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, today introduced the Stop the SURGE Act to demand President Biden, his administration, and Congressional Democrats address the unprecedented man-made crisis on the South Texas border and their political decisions that directly created it. This legislation would establish new ports of entry in 13 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 legislation would provide much needed relief to Border Patrol and local law enforcement who have been stretched beyond capacity at the Texas border, and require insulated communities to help shoulder the burdens of their preferred open-border policies,” said a statement on Cruz’ website.


“For the past ten months, President Biden and his administration have willingly surrendered the United States’ southern border to dangerous criminal cartels, with no thought given to the South Texas border communities like McAllen and Del Rio, which are running low on resources from dealing with this massive influx of illegal immigrants. That’s why today 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,” added the Texas Senator.
