Dozens of travelers at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) confronted Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) with chants of “free the children,” a reference to the immigrant children being held at migrant detention centers, as he waited on his luggage.
The video shows Cruz smiling, shaking a few hands as the group chanted.
“We will not be silenced,” one man shouted.
“Free the children, free the children,” the crowd chants in unison with some throwing their fists in the air.
