Bronx Hecklers to Cruz: ‘You Should Not Be Here’by Sam Reisman | 3:07 pm, April 6th, 2016
New York Values
At his rally in The Bronx Wednesday afternoon, Sen. Ted Cruz was interrupted by protesters, heckling the candidate for his staunch anti-immigration stance.
“You’re running on an anti-immigrant platform, and you’re speaking in the Bronx,” a protester said, according to the New York Daily News. “You should not be here.”
The News reported that the “demonstrator was cheered like a Yankee by fellow protesters after Republican party staffers removed him from the restaurant” where Cruz’s rally was being held.
Shortly after the rally, Cruz spoke to reporters defended his use of the phrase “New York values,” an epithet he had used to insult liberal Democrats, and which earned him the ire of Gotham at large.
The New York primary is April 19, and Cruz is currently polling last in the Empire State.
