It has been inspiring to hear from thousands of Texans during the Spring Recess. I'm happy I had the chance to speak with so many Texans, as we confront challenges to our Second Amendment rights, and yesterday, mourn the loss of Margaret Thatcher. I hope you'll take a few minutes to read our latest update and share it with your Facebook friends and Twitter followers.
All the best,
REMEMBERING MARGARET THATCHER
Yesterday, former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher passed away and Sen. Cruz paid tribute saying, "The world mourns the loss of an extraordinary leader, the great Margaret Thatcher...the world will forever be in her debt. Long live the memory of our dearly departed Iron Lady." Read the full statement here.
STOPPING THE UN ARMS TREATY
Last week, the United Nations passed an arms trade treaty that President Obama is expected to sign. Sen. Cruz joined Ben Ferguson on his radio show to talk about the effort to stop that treaty and all other efforts to infringe on Americans' Second Amendment rights.
WHAT IS AHEAD
In the coming weeks, it is expected that legislation will come before the Senate on gun control, immigration, and the President's budget. Sen. Cruz has pledged to use any procedural means necessary to ensure Congress does not pass any laws infringing on the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens. On immigration reform, Sen. Cruz believes there can be broad, bipartisan support for increasing resources to secure our border and streamline our legal immigration system, but any pathway to citizenship is inconsistent with rule of law and profoundly unfair to the millions of legal immigrants who have waited in line. And on the budget, it is critical that we get our nation's fiscal house in order, restore economic growth, and pass a responsible budget that doesn't continue to spend away our children's and grandchildren's futures.
