Ted Cruz is so opposed to illegal immigration that he delivered gift baskets to them in 2014

So you actually believe Ted Cruz when he says he’s anti-illegal immigration?
Did you know that less than 2 years ago, in July 2014, he joined that nutty TV-radio talker Glenn Beck in distributing gift baskets to illegal migrants at the US-Mexico border in McAllen, Texas?
Sarah Palin knows. Last night, at the Milwaukee County GOP dinner in Wisconsin, Palin reminded the audience of just that.

As reported by Erica Ritz for The Blaze, on Saturday, July 19, 2014, Mercury One, the charity founded by Glenn Beck, went to the border in McAllen, Texas “to distribute tractor-trailers full of food, water, clothing and toys to the illegal immigrant children who are pouring into the United States.”
Beck was joined by Dana Loesch, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), Rep. Randy Weber (R-Texas), and later that morning by Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas).

Ehh, Ted? What’s that you’re saying about how Trump keeps changing his mind on issues?

Is any reader surprised? Hypocrisy is the politico’s first survival tool in the wilds of WA DofC!

Ted Cruz is as fake as Dolly Parton’s boobs. Face it! He’s no more real than Mr. McGoo or Bugs Bunny.

I remember Beck doing this. Didn’t realize Cruz was there. Ugh.

Yeah. Sarah Palin also knows that Trump is going to fight for conservative values. But I know better. I don’t know how she got fooled; I guess she equated what people say with what people do.
And Cruz can deliver all the gift baskets he wants, as long as he votes against illegal immigration. Period. He does and he has. Who else has done that? Trump has hired them–Rubio gave them in-state tuition, Jeb said that illegal immigration equals love.

Yep, Cruz’s persona melted off from a year ago really quick. This is what these two are doing: They’re playing what is to them an entertaining parlor game. People don’t understand something: A politician, like a real estate agent or a salesman or a lawyer is a BROKER. They may or may not believe what they are peddling. But peddle their wares they do, at the behest of their sponsors. They pick the platforms they do in the hopes of grabbing enough of the market share to get elected. But when you one day discover you’re dealing not merely with… Read more »

People have to be awfully naive to believe this choreographed publicity stunt was anything other than a living example of hypocrites trumpeting their almsgiving before them in the streets. And they have received the reward they deserve, which is being exposed as the execrable hypocrites they are.

I don’t see the conflict here. Let me explain. I serve on the board of directors of a charily. About have of the 30 directors are conservatives, the other half liberals. The conservatives including me are actively pushing in our private lives for closing the borders and deporting illegal aliens. But in this charity, we have hundreds of doctors signed up to provide free services to illegal immigrant children. This takes the load off of the taxpayer, and all of these folks (board members, doctors, dentists) are volunteering for this. The board members pay for the privilege of serving, and… Read more »

Cruz Gets Tricky Concerning Amnesty
Cruz’s amendment would have purposefully left intact the bill’s provisions to provide legal status for them. Numerous media outlets described Cruz’s plan as a compromise “middle road” in the immigration debate that he hoped might be palatable to enough legislators in both houses of Congress to actually pass.
