Ted Cruz introduces bill to create immigrant processing centers in R.I. and M.A.
"...where Democrat elites host their cocktail parties," Senator Cruz said.
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) – A new bill by U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) introduces relocating immigrants from the southern border to thirteen communities across the nation to be processed- including places in Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
“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,” Sen. Cruz said in a statement.
It’s called Stop the SURGE Act. It would mandate that all immigrants who arrive in Texas be transferred to these ports for processing.
Other locations mentioned on this act include:
- Block Island, R.I.
- Greenwich, Conn.
- Martha’s Vineyard, Mass.
- Cambridge, Mass.
- Governors Island, N.Y.
- Rehoboth Beach, Del.
- Nantucket, Mass.
- Newport, R.I.
- Scarsdale, N.Y.
- Palo Alto, Calif.
- Yountville, Calif.
- St. Helena, Calif.
- North Hero, Vt.
