WASHINGTON (CBSDFW.COM) While he has expressed support for President Donald Trumps plans for a border wall, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said in a statement he is against closing the border to slow the flow of South American migrants and asylum seekers.
Closing the border to legal commerce would be devastating to Texas. Millions of jobs, in Texas and across the country, depend upon trade with Mexico, and the federal government shouldnt do anything to jeopardize those jobs, Sen. Cruz said.

Dont be a cuckold, Ted.
Not stopping the illegal alien inundation will be devastating to the nation.
If you’re an American who has lost a job to an illegal or been squeezed out by HB-1, well, the Chamber of Commerce really doesn’t care...nor do most politicians.
See ya at the bill signing.
This is precisely why in 2015 I felt something really bad about Cruz and immediately jumped to Trump. Something told me he really wasn’t going to stand against illegals.
Cruz is a hoser, eh? He has been in Congress for a long time and has had plenty of time to do something about it.
Me to..that and the Glenn Beck circus.
Its an extremely sh1tty business model that also happens to be illegal.
Ted should send himself a shaming letter.
He’s right. We gotta keep trade open with Mexico. So keep the drugs, gang bangers and sex slaves coming in, along with the cheap labor and ballot box stuffers./s
Uncle Ted knows whats best for us lowly taxpayers.
No statement from Ted about the raid in Texas that netted almost 300 illegal aliens, or the employer........
I think given what he’s saying, he’d consider that a tragedy.
The Cruz backstory is worse than Obama. Cruz’s father has a shady past which should be of interest to look into. Ted is a typical politician who only believes in the chamber of commerce.
Jackass Ted at it again. Hey Ted, you think the flood of millions of Mexicans and Central Americans into Texas, voting, spreading disease, driving drunk, is a little “devastating” also?
Initially, I supported Cruz due to his “apparent” support of the Constitution...but it was a weak support, at best.
When Trump came down the escalator and said he rejected ILLEGALS invading America, I jumped on the train and been a YUGE supporter.
Trump is the first pro-America president since Ronald Reagan...and our last hope to save America, our sovereignty & our Constitutional Republic.
Do not forget everyone. Ted is a globalist!
Sorry Ted. Compared to the strain on our resources to provide for these illegals, the cost of lives taken by illegals every year, the amount of drug deaths connected to the illegal flow of drugs over the border, the cost of treating diseases and parasites that these illegals bring with them when they come, how can you possibly think that shutting the border could be any more devastating than what it has already cost this country, and Texas?
