From the Lone Star State, Senator Ted Cruz (R) has been on the frontlines of the U.S. border debacle between Republicans and Democrats.

As tension has heightened between both sides of the aisle, Senator Cruz has now directed a letter to Kevin McAleenan, the acting Secretary of the DHS, calling for the Department of Homeland Security to reimburse Texas border communities for their efforts to secure the border.

In the letter, Senator Cruz argues that “for decades, Congress has failed to fully secure our southern border which has invited hundreds of thousands of illegal crossings per month.”
