Several mayors said the meeting was productive and that Cruz did much more listening than talking...

According to sources, Ryan will be here for a tour of the border, accompanied by U.S. Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Austin, U.S. Rep. John Carter, R-Round Rock, and possibly other top congressional republicans....
