Sen Ted Cruz told reporters he disagrees with President Trump and open borders Senators who are pushing hard to reward lawbreaking squatters in the US with citizenship
A day after President Trump announced he had a plan for giving illegal alien squatters citizenship and rewarding their squatter parents who brought them here illegally with foreign-born citizen anchor babies, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) voiced his opposition.
The White House provided details on Thursday to the plan generally announced by Trump a day earlier, stating that 1.8 million illegals would be given what is essentially “successful evasion recognition awards” for defeating US immigration law, with the support of open border globalist Democrats.
Cruz rejected the arguments Trump made as a basis for handing out citizenship like it was Halloween candy on Thursday as well, telling reporters, “I do not believe we should be granting a path to citizenship to anybody here illegally. Doing so is inconsistent with the promises we made to the men and women who elected us.”
Cruz continued, “For some reason that to me is utterly inexplicable. We see Republicans falling all over themselves to gallop to the left of Obama in a way that is contrary to the promises made to the voters who elected us.”
Senator Cruz was obviously not only directing his comments towards President Trump but also his colleagues in the Senate who are racing once again to cave in to Democrats on the issue and giving it a stature it does not deserve. The border wall is a critical issue. Rewarding lawbreakers who are part of the problem that is forcing us to expend billions of dollars to prevent others from doing as they did shouldn’t be.
President Trump offered citizenship as a bargaining chip in order to gain Democrat cooperation on funding the border wall. He stated that they wouldn’t have citizenship immediately, that it would happen in ten to twelve years. That’s semantics. All the illegals really care about is being able to stay openly. The process under which that happens is secondary and there is little sense of patriot pride driving it. The citizenship component is important to their Democrat enablers, who see them as extending their power.
Senator Cruz’s response is similar to that of many other Americans who want border security, including a wall and workplace enforcement, as well as an end to the gravy train of social benefits. Many fail to understand why we have to surrender to the lawbreakers and their political terrorists sponsors in the Democrat Party in order to be able to meet the needs of our nation.
