Trump talks about self in speech at couple's wedding

"You had children side-by-side lying on the floor, no beds, cots, lying on the floor, covered up in emergency reflective blankets and 10% of the population there is testing positive for COVID", Cruz said in an interview with Fox News on Wednesday.

The Texas GOP's visit to the border featured multiple officials and border experts, including former acting Customs and Border Protection chief Mark Morgan and former acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement director Tom Homan.

The former U.S. president delivered a two-and-a-half minute speech at a wedding reception held at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida over the weekend. At a press conference held during the visit, the senators said that the facility, which was built to hold 250 migrants, now holds almost 4,000.

"We were ready to make a deal [with Iran], they were ready to do anything, they would have done anything".

Trump also spoke about the domestic situation in the US.

She said the White House was "digging out of a broken system over the past four years".

Last week, as controversy mounted, a single reporter was permitted to accompany a congressional delegation to a facility at Carrizo Springs, near San Antonio. Of those, 39 children had been stuck in the tent facility for more than 15 days as they await placement in a shelter overseen by the US Department of Health and Human Services. Numerous pods had more than 500 children in them.

Officials said the children were taken to the Santa Teresa Border Patrol Station for a medical evaluation before going to a local hospital for "precautionary reasons", according to the release.

A top U.S. border official says he expects more than a million migrants will arrive at the Mexico border this year, a sign of a growing humanitarian challenge for President Joe Biden.

"What is occurring here on the border is heartbreaking, and it is a tragedy", he said.

"What's happening to the kids, they're living in squalor".

Nevertheless, the Biden administration has issued a warning against coming to the USA southern border, where migrant arrests are at an all-time high.
