Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) joked that media outlets should refer to the man who jumped the White House fence, made it across the lawn, and got inside as an “undocumented White House visitor.

“We should insist that ABC, NBC, CBS, they refer to the visitor according to the term that is politically correct: an undocumented White House visitor,” Cruz, a hardliner on immigration reform, said during his speech at the Values Voter Summit on Friday.

Since the intrusion the White House has said it planned to boost security including increasing surveillance and using more police officer patrols.
