Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) was harassed at Los Angeles International Airport on Sunday, July 27, by a large group of immigration protesters.
As the group started increasing in size, the protesters chanted, “Americans will not be silent” and “free the children.” Cruz simply kept his calm, shook head, and smiled. With kindness, he agreed to take a photo with one individual.
Ryan Fournier, the national chairman for Students for Trump, tweeted the video and praised Cruz’s reaction. “Can you imagine what would’ve happened if someone did this to a member of the ‘squad’?”

“They would’ve immediately lashed out claiming racism, sexism, etc.,” he added.
This is not the first time that Cruz has been harassed by liberal protesters. Last September, the senator and his wife were assaulted by members of the Washington chapter of antifa who sent him a message warning that he was “not safe.”
The Republican senator has clearly expressed his steady stance on the importance of a wall at the U.S. southern border and supported President Donald Trump’s immigration policy.
In January, Cruz was one of five senators who reintroduce the bill the Wall Act to fully fund a wall along the U.S. southern border, adding that the bill would fix “existing loopholes that provide illegal immigrants with federal benefits and tax credits, without affecting the benefits and tax credits used by Americans,” according to Breitbart.
Earlier this month, Cruz with Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La) proposed a resolution to label left-wing activists antifa, a terrorist group and called for an investigation into antifa.
