My information has it that Cruz’s father was a Cuban living in Canada when Ted was born and who actually supported Castro for a time.
Oh good grief!!!
"Cruz was born and spent the first four years of his life in Calgary before his parents returned to Houston. His father was jailed and tortured by the Fulgencio Batista regime and fought for Fidel Castro in the Cuban Revolution but "didn't know Castro was a Communist" and later became a staunch critic of Castro when "the rebel leader took control and began seizing private property and suppressing dissent."
Cruz's father was never a Communist and infact, is a Soutern Baptist minister in the Dallas area!
