Sen. Ted Cruz criticized Senate Republican leadership for collaborating with House Democrats on a border bill that has no chance of passing the Republican-controlled House.

He accused the leadership of prioritizing political messaging over securing the border and suggested that their actions were effectively helping Democrats in the House.

“Senate Republican leadership has basically declared war on House Republicans,” Cruz said. “And I had been standing up, as have a number of other conservatives making the case against this, and many of my Republican colleagues are getting really pissed off.”

“Here’s really what’s accomplished: It is all about political messaging,” Cruz said. “This enables Chuck Schumer, it enables every Democrat running for reelection and enables Joe Biden to, number one, to not secure the border, to leave the crisis exactly as it is. But number two, to say, ‘Well, we wanted to secure the border, but the Republicans stopped us.’ This is all about giving political cover for Democrats.”

Cruz also called out some Republican colleagues for their remarks, accusing them of echoing Democratic talking points and being used as “useful idiots” to reelect Democrats.

“The reason [Senate Republican leadership] wants to do it is once they’ve passed it in the Senate, use it as a club to beat the crap out of House Republicans and to defeat the House Republican majority,” he said. “It is literally Senate Republican leadership helping the Democrats in the House.”

“You are reading Chuck Schumer’s talking points,” he said. “And your lie will be used to reelect Democrats to the Senate and in the House. You’re simply being useful idiots. And sadly, they have no response to that; they just go back out and tell the reporters the same damn thing all over again.”
