PHOTOS: Eight climate protesters arrested after trespassing outside Cruz’s home

Eight people accused of trespassing were arrested after they refused to leave Senator Ted Cruz’ private property in Houston, police said.

Assistant Police Chief Ban Tien said in a video posted on Facebook and said “The large majority of the group are extremely peaceful out there expressing the First Amendment rights (to) protest against climate change. Unfortunately, there was a small group who was actually committing trespassing into private property in front of the senator’s residence.”

Per Erin Douglass “Protesters finished the last mile of a 40 day and 400 mile climate march from New Orleans in Houston today. They marched to raise awareness of climate disasters (hurricanes, pollution, TX freeze).
