Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas said in a recent radio appearance that the U.S. needs to protect its borders the same way Israel does.

“For Israel, borders are life or death,” Cruz told Breitbart News on SiriusXM.

“Borders are ensuring that innocent men, women, and children are not murdered by terrorists seeking to destroy them. And so, there is a great deal we can learn on border security from Israel in terms of how to effectively secure a border.”

Cruz also said that Israel is surrounded by hostile countries, and doesn’t, “have the luxury of indulging in political correctness and ignoring the harsh realities of the world we live in.” (RELATED: Ted Cruz Praises Trump On North Korea, Blasts Obama For ‘Weakness And Appeasement’ Of Dictators)
