Air travel passengers decided to heckle Sen. Ted Cruz from Texas as he waited for a flight at LAX Sunday.

Onlookers yelled "Americans will not be silent," "Families matter!" and "Free the children!" among other chants and appeared to criticize his immigration policies. Other people took out their phones to record the scenario. 

The group surrounded him as he waited to board a flight to Austin. Cruz appears to look a little uncomfortable, smiling and with his hands in his pockets.

The chants are in reference to the immigrant asylum seeking children being held at the US-Mexico border in detention centers that have come under fire from Democratic leaders.
