97 -1. 97 Senators Voted To Debate Immigration/DACA, but Not Ted Cruz

Austin, TX — 97 United States Senators voted to move towards a debate on immigration and DACA. The only NO vote to begin the debate on immigration was Texas Republican Ted Cruz.

Recently, Texas Republican Ted Cruz blasted the idea of giving young undocumented immigrants a path to citizenship.

Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement:

“The only no vote to begin debate on immigration was the Cuban that was born in Canada. Sinvergüenza

“This isn’t the first time Ted Cruz has betrayed Texans. It won’t be the last.

“Senator, lives are literally at stake. It’s time to fix a broken immigration system, not grandstand for the next election.”
