Ted Cruz directs migrant caravan to homes of Beto O’Rourke supporters

Elections 2018

U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz furthering his attacks against U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke, who is challenging him in the election.

Cruz is also taking aim at those following the Democrat in his fight to change immigration policies. 

Cruz rallied in San Angleo on Tuesday, discussing issues such as immigration. During his speech, he specifically made his feelings clear to his supporters that the caravan of Central American migrants were not welcomed, but, if they made it they should turn to O’Rourke’s supporters for help. 

“When you get here, we have identified homes, that are willing to take you in to give you free housing, free food, free health care,” Cruz said. “And every one of these homes is self identified with a little black and white sign that says Beto. Don’t bother knocking, just kick the door and they don’t believe in walls, so just let yourself in, and make yourself at home.”

With Judge Brett Kavanugh’s recent confirmation as Supreme Court justice, Sen. Cruz expressed his support of the judge and his family.

His bus tour stops today also include Midland and Amarillo.
