Ted Cruz on decision to fly to Mexico as Texas freezes

Guardian News published this video item, entitled “Ted Cruz on decision to fly to Mexico as Texas freezes” – below is their description.

Texas senator Ted Cruz has sparked outcry after he was spotted flying to the balmier destination of Cancún, Mexico as millions of his constituents endure deadly power outages and freezing temperatures. Cruz was seen boarding the flight on Wednesday with his family. A day later, after the images went viral, he returned to Texas. “When you got two girls who have been cold for two days and haven’t had heat or power, and they’re saying, ‘Hey, look, we don’t have school, why don’t we go, let’s get out of here’, I think there are a lot of parents that’d be like, ‘All right, let me – if I can do this, great,” Cruz said.

    Mexico is a country in the southern portion of North America. It is the most populous Spanish-speaking nation. Mexico City is its capital city and largest metropolis.

    Mexico became an independent nation state after the successful Mexican War of Independence against Spain in 1821.

    Mexico is a developing country, but has the world’s 15th-largest economy by nominal GDP and the 11th-largest by PPP, with the United States being its largest economic partner. Since 2006, a conflict between the government and drug trafficking syndicates has led to over 120,000 deaths.

    Mexico receives a significant number of tourists every year; in 2018, it was the 6th most-visited country in the world, with 39 million international arrivals.
