Cruz Drops Truth Bombs About Crime Spikes In Major Cities: ‘Every Single One of Them Is Run by Democrats’

Sen. Ted Cruz lashed out at Democrats for spiking crime in America’s biggest cities, noting that every one of them is run by members of the party.

“Crime is surging across this country. Murder rates are rising. Assault rates are rising. Carjacking rates are rising,” Cruz said during a GOP press briefing.

“Last year, 12 major American cities broke records in homicide rates: Portland, Indianapolis, Toledo, Rochester, St. Paul, Tucson, Albuquerque, Louisville, Columbus, Baton Rouge, Austin and Philadelphia,” Cruz said.

“What do those 12 cities have in common? Every single one of them is run by Democrats. All of them,” Cruz continued.

“The crime that we are seeing surging across this country is a direct result of Democrats’ soft-on-crime policies,” he added, noting how President Joe Biden nominated, and Democrats confirmed, two “defund the police” advocates to top positions at the Justice Department.

“Joe Biden nominated not one, but two, of the leading advocates in the country for abolishing the police to senior roles at the U.S. Department of Justice,” he said at the Senate GOP news conference.

“Every single Senate Democrat voted to confirm two of the leading advocates of abolishing the police to senior positions at the Department of Justice.”

Cruz added: “Pres. Biden nominated Rachael Rollins to be the U.S. attorney of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Rachel Rollins is one of the many [George] Soros [funded] D.A.s who, as district attorney in Suffolk County, put out a list of 15 crimes her prosecutors were not allowed to prosecute.”

He ripped Senate Dems for consenting to the nomination.

“If one Senate Democrat on the Judiciary Committee had said, ‘No,’ Rachael Rollins, this incredibly soft-on-crime Soros D.A. – who effectively abolished the police by ordering her prosecutors not to prosecute drug crimes, not to prosecute resisting arrest, not to prosecute trespassing – we’re seeing in stores across the country looters breaking in, mocking the law, because Democrats won’t prosecute them,” Cruz said.

“At any point, one Senate Democrat could had stood up and said, ‘Enough is enough.’ If one Senate Democrat on the Judiciary Committee had said, ‘No,’ these advocates for abolishing the police would not be senior members of the Department of Justice.

“It’s not right. It’s not fair and we need to keep people safe,” Cruz concluded.
