Senator Ted Cruz delivers "State of the Senate" for Chamber of Commerce (San Antonio)

SAN ANTONIO -- Senator Ted Cruz was introduced as a friend and public servant at the San Antonio Chamber of Commerce luncheon where he was the guest of honor.

Sen. Cruz addressed the crowd of 157 for about 47 minutes. He spoke of his father coming to Texas from Cuba with $100.

Sen. Cruz said his father went on to own a small business. "As Americans we are the children of those who risked everything," said Sen. Cruz.

Sen. Cruz said his father's story used to be common, but for the first time people are scared for the country.

Sen. Cruz said many fear the U.S. is bankrupting future generations.

Sen. Cruz avoided a question about whether he plans to run for President in 2016. He said he intends to vote for the person who is standing up and leading.

During a press briefing, Sen. Cruz responded to the ongoing issue of undocumented children entering the U.S. from Central America. "It is heartbreaking. It is a humanitarian crisis what is happening to these kids and we need to solve this problem," said Sen. Cruz. "We need to find appropriate resources, appropriate locations to care for these kids when they're here and then work to reunite them with their families back home."

A group of protestors outside carried signs and chanted for about 30 minutes. They said Sen. Cruz has failed to represent all Texans.

...

‘Ted Cruz’ and ‘Chamber of Commerce’ do not belong in the same sentence

It’s the local chamber, not the pro-amnesty national group.

I know, right. You would think he would have heard about that hot mess by now.

I enjoyed the paid Rat protestors gathered outside. The 3 or 4 “protestors” shown on the video were blathering, inarticulate, sign-holders. Really Embarrassing. Can’t the DNC do better?

That is often true, but it is San Antonio. Are these guys in bed with the Castro twins?

If they can’t get 100 illegals or rats to protest in San Antonio they have problems.

I’ve been to San Antonio once in my life, body-guarding Eva Longoria and her basketball player husband at a lawn & garden store party for VIPs. I have no idea who the chamber of commerce sides with there.

All local chambers pay dues to the national group. They do have some autonomy but cannot wander too far off the reservation. I no longer belong to a local Republican group because they decided to go all in with the local chamber and I just can’t go along with their position on pushing amnesty for illegals.

We went to San Antonio about three years ago after not having been there for many years. Visited the River Walk and Fiesta Texas and felt like we were in the heart of Mexico.
