On Sunday, February 21 the protesters were joined by some very special guests—a mariachi band.

@miyashay See? He didn't have to go to Mexico. Mexico could come to his door and he could have stayed and been helpful.— Stephenoid (@Stephenoid) 1613955842.0
Cruz's unpopularity seems to be reaching a fever pitch following his embarrassing misstep he initially blamed on his daughters.
