His views are against ours
Ted Cruz came to New York Wednesday talking about education, but hes the one who got schooled.
The lesson came from a group of Bronx high school students who told the Republican presidential candidate to stay away.
Cruz was scheduled to speak at Bronx Lighthouse College Preparatory Academy until students wrote a letter to the principal asking her not to let Cruz come, prompting staffers to cancel the appearance.
"We told her if he came here, we would schedule a walkout," said Destiny Domeneck, 16. "Most of us are immigrants or come from immigrant backgrounds. Ted Cruz goes against everything our school stands for."
Destiny and her classmates communicated that sentiment to Lighthouse Principal Alix Duggins.
A group of students will be leaving during 4th period, as (an) act of civil disobedience in regards to the arrival of Ted Cruz to BLCPA, the letter said. We have all considered the consequences of our actions and are willing to accept them.

@mwirth525 @mitchellvii had no interest in subverting voters and they went on to say how Cruz is the only one who can yada yada, I hung up
Well well, Ted’s big mouth certainly is paying off in dividends now.
I wonder why some of us said it wasn’t a brilliant idea to trash various regions of the nation.
Late 2015 sign-on posts Cruz attack article from the most left-leaning newspaper in New York City? Seems legit.
Still say...no candidates should be allowed on publicly funded campuses. That said...these are ingrates.
WHAT ABOUT ROTC?
America’s problem is not politicians, government, the media, Hollywood, big business etc. We are the problem.
Smart kids, they know what a loser smells like.
Boy oh boy, Ted can’t get no satisfaction. Must be his “New York Values” coming out.
How utterly dumbed down and brainedwashed by the Marxist Left are today’s students. Cruz was the epitome of the good student. These students have no clue about their country, about individual initiative, freedom of speech, debate, etc. They are Marxist clones. How low the once superb schools of New York have fallen.
Unless they come from ILLEGAL immigrant backgrounds, they shouldn't have a problem with either Cruz or Trump. The Left brainwashes people to conflate illegal and legal immigration. It's all the same to them.
Are ROTC candidates?(NOT likely )..or are you saying candidates should be able to speak to the ROTC?
High school students, especially illegals, should NOT be running the show.
It’s Preacher Ted’s culture of bigotry and divisiveness. He brought it on himself.
If the new york vermin hate Cruz, then I have an even higher opinion of him!!!!
“Late 2015 sign-on posts Cruz attack article”
What’s your problem anyway ??? I use to post here years ago, and even if I did start months ago, what’s it to you.
No! WAIT!! Ted Cruz is for AMNESTY!!!! <-—Local Trumpette
Total setup for embarrass him. Teacher probably wrote the letter.
