To the editor:
I have just heard a news report that the U.S. Congress has failed to approve funds for the government to deal with the immigration problems at the U.S. border. Texas congressman Ted Cruz and his Republican members of the House have decided to oppose this because they desire to restrict the authority of the president of the United States.
Now, with Texas being one of the main locations where this border crisis is occurring, it strikes me as unbelievable that a member of Congress from that state would strike such a position. He is willing to allow this condition to exist and utterly fail to provide financial assistance to deal with the problem.
Is there any more evidence that the political arena of the U.S. is infected with hatred and opposition to any reasonable accommodation or work that would be beneficial to the country
