Ted Cruz Is Unfit For Office Must Resign Now

Houston –  In light of the terrorist attacks at the U.S. Capitol instigated by President Trump in corroboration with Texas Senator Ted Cruz. Mi Familia Vota is calling for the immediate resignation of Senator Ted Cruz for the following reasons: 

  • Senator Cruz continues to put his national political ambitions ahead of those of everyday Texans. For example, he recently opposed $2,000 for Americans suffering through the Covid-19 pandemic. 
  • Senator Cruz had a prominent role in inciting the violence and insurrection that recently gripped Washington, D.C. by attempting to overturn the November 2020 elections. He did so after dozens of judges, the U.S. Supreme Court, and even the President’s own Attorney General rejected the false and outrageous claims that have fomented the violence we saw in the nation’s capital.  
  • Senator Cruz invoked the commission of 1877 in his seditious activities.  That commission led to the creation of Jim Crow laws in Texas which were disastrous to communities of color. 

If you would like to do something to get him to resign please join Our Virtual Action for Ted Cruz’s Resignation  Friday, January 8, 2021, from 4:00 pm-5:00 pm.  

Let’s send a loud message to Senator Ted Cruz. Threats to our democracy will not be tolerated and we need our public servants to disown white supremacy ideologies. Given Senator Cruz’s involvement in inciting riots in the U.S. Capitol earlier this week, we are asking for his immediate resignation. 

Join our call to action this afternoon. Local Texas leaders will convene to protect our democracy.  Sign-up HERE

Angelica Razo, State Director of Mi Familia Vota released the following statement: 

“Ted Cruz’s actions have severely injured our democracy, inspired hatred, insurrectionist acts and brought shame to the great state of Texas. 

We thrive in a society where every group is protected and valued, where every voice and every vote matters. Yesterday’s attacks at our nation’s Capitol Building are an affront to these rights, and we strongly condemn the divisive, violent, and extremist propaganda machine that has convinced people they are losing their country.

We cannot afford to allow Ted Cruz to continue to hold office when he lacks the judgment to not fan the flames of extremists who would harm our democracy.  That is why Mi Familia Vota is calling for him to resign immediately. He is unfit for office and is a traitor to our country.

Mi Familia Vota builds Latino political power as a national civic engagement organization that unites Latino, immigrant, and allied communities to promote social and economic justice through citizenship workshops, voter registration, and voter participation.
