LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - He has been mentioned as a possible candidate for the 2016 Presidential Elections, and now Ted Cruz is in Laredo to talk border security and other issues affecting our area.
Cruz met with Mayor Raul Salinas and other city leaders for a round-table discussion. This would be the second time he meets with them; the last time was during Laredo's visit to Washington.
In the past, he has been a big voice for security along our border. Last year, he proposed the government triple the number of Border Patrol agents and even quadruple the equipment they use, including helicopters and drones. But that proposal didn't make it to the Senate floor.
