Dreamers Reject a Ted Cruz Presidential Candidacy & His Extremists Agenda on Immigration
DALLAS, TX– This morning news broke that Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) announced that he will run for President. Cesar Vargas and Erika Andiola, co-Directors of the Dream Action Coalition, issued the following statement regarding his candidacy:
“The only policy Latinos hear from Ted Cruz is that he wants to end DACA for Dreamers, block DAPA for our parents, and obstruct immigration reform for years still. We reject Ted Cruz, which is sad, because while he is the first Latino to declare his candidacy, he may be the most anti-immigration candidate on stage during the debates.
While Ted Cruz has a Latino name and immigration in his past, that’s where the similarities between him and the Latino community end. While he may have taken over the niche left by Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann in leading the Tea Party, this doesn’t give him a serious chance at the presidency, and most likely he’s in the race in the same context as Donald Trump and Herman Cain: he’s there only to build his personal brand understanding he doesn’t have a real chance at winning the primary, let alone the general election.”
