José Daz-Balart, the anchor of MSNBC, questioned the Ruiz about legislative solutions to the escalating migrant crisis.
As for the Republican response to the humanitarian situation, Ruiz said, “We’ve seen that the Republican approach is to create a larger humanitarian disaster, via derision, lies, and mockery for political advantage.” His own party, he continued, has put “people before politics” when it comes to the border because of this.
