He did not deserve what was said…
Over the weekend at LAX airport, a group of protesters surrounded Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.
The group can be heard shouting “free the children” at Cruz in a video that went viral Monday.
The left-wing organization “Voto Latino” tweeted the video, accusing Cruz of supporting locking immigrants in cages.
“Those in positions of power must be held accountable for the treatment of children and families at the border. #CloseTheCamps,” the group tweeted.
Politicians like @TedCruz that allow our people to be locked in cages don’t get to be comfortable in public. Those in positions of power must be held accountable for the treatment of children and families at the border. #CloseTheCamps pic.twitter.com/C8SFMovaDS

This is not the first encounter Cruz has had with screaming protesters. Last year, the senator and his wife Heidi Cruz were hunted out of a restaurant in Washington D.C. for supporting the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh, now Supreme Court Justice.
These types of incidents have become prevalent events, particularly where conservative politicians and government figures are concerned. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his wife were also confronted by protesters at a restaurant last year, shortly after Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
Most recently, Eric Trump was spit on last month by a restaurant employee in Chicago. The employee was later detained by the Secret Service.
