Heidi Cruz, the wife of republican presidential candidate, Ted Cruz, has not played a very visible or prominent role in the campaign of her husband. Many have questioned this and have speculated that Ted Cruz is ‘hiding’ his wife, and have questioned, why?
I am writing this article in order to familiarize America with Heidi, and perhaps to shed a little light, as to why Mr. Cruz may not want her front and center in his campaign.
Heidi Cruz is currently an investment manager at Goldman Sachs, and has done very well in this position. She is also heavily involved in fund raising for her husbands campaign. There has been some controversy surrounding her affiliation with Goldman Sachs, first when it was revealed that Ted Cruz was covered by her insurance with the company, and secondly when it was revealed that the Cruz’s had borrowed money from Goldman Sachs and Citibank and failed to disclose this information in his race for the Senate.
Prior to working for Goldman Sachs, Heidi Cruz was an economic policy adviser to the 2000 George W. Bush presidential campaign. and was eventually director for the Western Hemisphere on the National Security Council under Condoleezza Rice . This is where it gets interesting!
Heidi Cruz also served as a member of the council on foreign relations, (CFR), sponsored Independent Task Force on the future of North America. This is most interesting, as this task force called for open borders, which has been a strong factor in the 2016 presidential race for the White House. Ted Cruz has stated during his campaign that he will secure our borders, but this has not always been his agenda, as he has fought to form a pathway for illegal immigrants to ‘come out of the shadows’, stating that he “remains open to a path to legal status for undocumented workers.”
The Independent Task Force has sought to combine three countries, in which they would secure a North American Border, “The three countries should develop a secure North American Border Pass with biometric identifiers. This document would allow its bearers expedited passage through customs, immigration, and airport security throughout the region.”
A long-term goal for a North American border action plan should be . . . the elimination of most controls over the temporary movement of these travelers within North America. “Security cooperation among the three countries should also extend to cooperation on counterterrorism and law enforcement, which would include the establishment of a trinational threat intelligence center, the development of trinational ballistics and explosives registration, and joint training for law enforcement officials.” This would explain why the United States police department’s are hiring non citizen’s as officers!
The North American Union would support Canada and the United States eliminating restrictions on labor mobility altogether and work toward solutions that, in the long run, could enable the extension of full labor mobility to Mexico as well.
Although, Ted Cruz has argued that his wife is not a ‘globalist’, his national campaign spokesperson, Rick Tyler stated “Her contribution to the report was narrowly focused on economic issues,” She said as much in her dissenting view included in the report.” For your clarfication I am listing Heidi Cruz’s note in the last part of the Task Force report:
“I support the Task Force report and its recommendations aimed at building a safer and more prosperous North America. Economic prosperity and a world safe from terrorism and other security threats are no doubt inextricably linked. While governments play an invaluable role in both regards, we must emphasize the imperative that economic investment be led and perpetuated by the private sector. There is no force proven like the market for aligning incentives, sourcing capital, and producing results like financial markets and profit-making businesses. This is simply necessary to sustain a higher living standard for the poorest among us—truly the measure of our success. As such, investment funds and financing mechanisms should be deemed attractive instruments by those committing the capital and should only be developed in conjunction with market participants.”
The involvement of Heidi Cruz in the North American Union scheme is highly disturbing, considering that the United States is being bombarded with illegal immigrants, and the majority of American’s feel that we need to secure our borders, by building a wall on the southern border to keep illegal immigrants out of our country.
Where does Ted Cruz really stand on the issue of illegal immigration? One never knows, as he has supported allowing illegal immigrants to ‘come out of the shadows’. , while during his presidential campaign, he has declared that he will secure our borders and halt illegal immigration.
One must also take into consideration that Ted Cruz was born in Calgary, Canada, and maintained dual citizenship with Canada, until May 14, 2014, when he formally renounced his citizenship with Canada.
I find it ironic that Ted Cruz is making a bid for the White House, as President, the highest office in our land, when under his own logic he is ineligible for this office.
When one considers the fact that Ted Cruz was born in Canada, and his eligibility to be President is highly questionable, and then one adds the fact that his wife supports a union between Canada, Mexico and the United States, a Ted Cruz presidency would not bode well for the future of the United States.
