In 2013, after the Kingwood TEA Party had received confirmation that Sen. Ted Cruz was going to visit our group in August, we began promoting his visit as our First Freedom Rally.

In a short amount of time, our Freedom Rally grew to include then TX AG Greg Abbott and two other gubernatorial candidates, nearly every state-wide candidate for office, and a host of local candidates, though only Sen. Cruz and General Abbott were slated to speak.

About 1 week before the event & 700 RSVP’s later:

I received a call from one of Ted’s top staff members informing me that Ted had to cancel his appearance at our event. Turns out that a major national anti-ObamaCare tour was kicking off the night of our event in Dallas and Sen. Cruz had to be there.

After catching my breath and with my heart in my throat, I told his staffer that ok, this is what we elected him to do, and had to hang up and go to work.

My husband then spoke with the same gentleman from the Senator’s office after I left for work that morning, and explained how our event had grown from just the Senator speaking into a large Freedom Rally. Ted’s staffer said he would share the information with the powers that be, but couldn’t promise anything.

The next call came the following morning. When Ted had heard from his staff what was going on with our event, we were told he looked them in the eye and said, “Where have we agreed to be that evening?”

They then made some calls with the organizers of the anti-ObamaCare tour, and were able to get their cooperation. They changed all their plans and hotel reservations for this major national event to the next night.

Sen. Ted Cruz honored his commitment to us 
and then honored his commitment to fight
the implementation of ObamaCare!

Sen. Cruz didn’t have to do this, but this is who he is. It has been our experience that Ted does everything possible to honor his word even for a small group of his supporters in Texas over a huge national tour.

We follow Sen. Cruz’s issues, bills, and career closely. We were informed of his poison pill amendments as they happened, we supported  him. We tweeted throughout his ObamaCare filibuster, and watch all his videos. He has gone to Washington to be our voice and to bring the issues Texans care about onto the national stage.

Sen. Ted Cruz is a brilliant man of his word who cares deeply about Texas, our Nation, our freedoms, and our Constitution. He will fight for us to rein in the regulatory state spending us into oblivion, seal our borders, and get the Federal government out of the way so businesses can thrive, hiring more employees and improving the economy.

More importantly, we trust Sen. Cruz to nominate Supreme Court Justices who will respect our Constitution and the freedoms it created a limited government to protect.

Kingwood TEA Party is honored to support
Sen. 
Ted Cruz for President of the United States.

Sen. Cruz Introduces the Immigration Slush Fund Elimination Act

Bill would end the ability of DHS to use legal immigration service fees to fund amnesty

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today introduced the Immigration Slush Fund Elimination Act to prohibit the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) from using the fees it collects for the provision of legal immigration services to fund amnesty. The bill would also restore congressional authority over the appropriations process and refocus the department on its national security mission.

“America has always been a land of refuge and opportunity for those seeking freedom, and we should champion legal immigration,” said Sen. Cruz. “Ronald Reagan referred to legal immigrants, immigrants like my father, as Americans by choice. The federal government should not be in the business of looting the wallets of those who followed the law and came here legally to fund the President’s illegal and unconstitutional amnesty. This bill w
