Ted Cruz has faced serious backlash after he was spotted jetting off to sunny Cancun. And now, he is being called on to resign.

Here's the full story...

Now, Ted Cruz is never far from controversy...

But his latest actions might be his worst yet...

And he's left Texans appalled...

Cruz has sparked fury more than ever after he was seen fleeing to Mexico to escape snow-stricken Texas as residents of the state continue to struggle.

Because right now, a winter storm is wreaking havoc in numerous southern U.S states...

Getty

And Texas is perhaps the worst affected.

According to The Guardian, professionals have noted that the heating of the arctic may be to blame for these crazy changes in the weather.

Especially for the snowstorms that have been brutally hitting the people of Texas.

They explained the situation:

"[Experts claim] there is evidence that the rapid heating of the Arctic can help push frigid air from the north pole much further south, possibly to the US-Mexico border."

Due to the state being unprepared for such unusual weather, people have been forced to evacuate their homes...

And the addition of heavy snowstorms and below-freezing temperatures has left the state completely powerless in most areas.

And not only that, but twenty-three deaths have been reported so far...

​And as temperatures continue to fall, this number is set to rise.

Texans are doing their best to push through this difficult period...

But with little to no options, some have been forced to make do with what they've got.

People have been taking to social media to share their bizarre new living situations during the unbearable temperatures...

Including this Twitter user whose fan had literally frozen to the ceiling and had icicles dangling down from it.

This is something that hasn't been experienced for decades...

And so many people and families are seriously struggling without any form of power, electricity, and hot running water.

President Biden declared a state of emergency in Texas last week...

And ordered federal assistance from the Department of Homeland Security and Federal Emergency Management Agency to supplement local response efforts.

Who knows how long this nightmare will last...

Well, things have just gotten even worse... and it's all thanks to the Senator for Texas, Ted Cruz.

Instead of staying in the state and working hard to help his people...

It has been reported that he's decided to pack up his bags and flee to sun-soaked Cancun in Mexico... which, of course, hasn't sat well with residents who are living in below-freezing conditions.

It was reported yesterday that Cruz was spotted in a Houston airport with his family queuing for a United Airlines flight.

It is strongly believed by the person who took the pictures that the Senator boarded a flight that departed at 4.44 pm and landed in Cancun at 7.52 pm.

And now, the Texas Democratic Party is calling on Cruz to resign...

"Ted Cruz jetting off to Mexico while Texans remain dying in the cold isn't surprising but it is deeply disturbing and disappointing," Texas Democratic Party Chairman Gilberto Hinojosa said. "Cruz is emblematic of what the Texas Republican Party and its leaders have become: weak, corrupt, inept, and self-serving politicians who don't give a damn about the people they were elected to represent. They were elected by the people but have no interest or intent of doing their jobs."

American Bridge also called for Cruz's resignation...

"Senator Cruz should do his constituents a favor and stay on the beach instead of getting paid by taxpayers to do a job he clearly has no interest in doing," the group's president, Bradley Beychok, said.

Cruz is yet to speak out about his whereabouts...

And we hope that he will soon make the right decision to return to Texas and help his people who so desperately need him in this crisis.
