Today the Cuban-American Texas Senator Ted Cruz was the only “Latino” Republican who voted against legal immigration reform that would help millions of Mexican – American families that live in Texas.
Cuban-American Ted Cruz is living in the State of Texas where the majority of the Latin people are of Mexican descent. Cruz becomes the convenient “Hispanic” while he stabs the many Mexican-American families living in Texas in the back. The majority of the Latin population in the United States (almost 70%) and in Texas are of Mexican descent. He wants the media to go to him on Hispanic issues, but does not vote what the majority of us are screaming for in our communities.
Why is Sen. Cruz silent on Cuban Amnesty via the Cuban Adjustment Act?
Is the Tea Party politician Cruz against Cuban immigrants receiving government benefit$ once their wet foot touches dry land since Tea Party people claim to be in support of doing away with tax payer funded government entitlement$?
What about the Cuban immigrant dry foot that touches dry land? Is this why we are seeing a spike with regard to Cuban immigrants coming through Mexico?
That said, let it be understood the Texas Senator is on the record for ending his speeches with a story about how his father fled Cuban oppression. According to the Dallas News, “his father departed for the U.S. in 1957, more than a year before Fidel Castro came to power.”
It appears the Cruz family supports taking amnesty benefits for themselves while shutting the door behind them to other immigrants. No wonder the DREAM Act students are calling Ted Cruz a vendido!
