Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) tore into President Joe Biden and Democrats on Monday for creating a terrorist-friendly environment and giving terrorists a “red-carpet invitation to come into the country.”

During an episode of his “Verdict with Ted Cruz” podcast with co-host Ben Ferguson, Cruz highlighted the consequences of Biden’s open border policies and his weakness toward the Islamic Republic of Iran, which is designated the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorists.

According to Cruz, the United States is at the highest risk of a terrorist attack since the 9/11 attacks.

“I think there’s no question about it and the risk of a major terrorist attack in the United States is higher today than it has been any time since September 11, 2001. And on top of that, we have the news breaking this weekend, USA Today reported, quote, ‘The US is on high alert for a potential attack on Israel or on American facilities in the Middle East in retaliation for an Israeli strike in Syria that killed Iranian commanders,’” he said.

“So, we have Iran, the leading state sponsor of terrorism, promising a decisive response, funding millions and millions of dollars to fund Hamas terrorists, to fund Hezbollah terrorists, to fund Palestinian Islamic Jihad, to attack directly American forces in the Middle East. And we have on top of that, Joe Biden and the Democrats and by the way, it’s not just Joe Biden, it’s every congressional Democrat who has rubber stamped these open border policies, who have given the Iranians and Hamas and Hezbollah a red-carpet invitation to come into this country,” he added.

Pointing to U.S. officials’ claims that tens of thousands of drones from Mexican drug cartels have been flown over the U.S. southern border to aid their criminal drug trafficking and human smuggling operations, Cruz said, “At a time when Americans are directly threatened with terror, Joe Biden has given an invitation for the terrorists to come to America.”

The Texas lawmaker further accused the president of turning “hard” against Israel amid its war with Hamas. According to him, the White House is “undermining and abandoning” the Middle East state with the support of Democrats.
