Cruz joins call for Biden to fix breaches in border levee before hurricane season in South Texas

U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, the junior Republican senator from Texas, joined his senior counterpart on Wednesday in urging the Biden administration to finish construction of a border levee system in deep South Texas where there are breaches caused by unfinished border wall construction that local officials fear could cause havoc if not fixed before the start of the upcoming hurricane season. Cruz sent a letter to President Joe Biden on Wednesday, two days after Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, also sent a letter to the Biden administration urging action. The Hidalgo County Judge last week told Border Report the federal government just “walked away” from the projects and have left them vulnerable.
