Skip to comments.Cruz: Iâ€™d Look For and Deport All Illegal Immigrants, Rubio and Trump Would Allow Citizenship
Posted on 02/24/2016 1:39:53 PM PST by TBP
Republican presidential candidate Texas Senator Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said he would seek out and deport all the illegal immigrants in the US and that both fellow candidates Donald Trump and Florida Senator Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)âwould allow those 12 million people to become US citizensâ on Mondayâs âThe OâReilly Factorâ on the Fox News Channel.
Cruz began by stating [relevant remarks begin around 2:30] that the law should be enforced, and illegal immigrants in the US should be deported.
When asked if he would âgo look for themâ Cruz responded, âBill, of course you would. Thatâs what ICE exists for. We have law enforcement that looks for people, who are violating the laws that apprehends them, and deports them.â
When asked if he would send federal law enforcement to the home of someone who overstayed their visa to deport them, Cruz said, âYou better believe it.â He later added that he would put a biometric exit/entry system for visas.
After host Bill OâReilly contended the courts would probably block this plan because of due process, Cruz objected. He further stated, â[T]he biggest difference is that Donald Trump and Marco Rubio and myself, is that both Donald Trump and Marco Rubio would allow those 12 million people to become U.S. citizens. Donald said once he deports them, heâd let them back in as citizens. I will not.â Cruz continued that under existing federal law, illegal immigrants who are deported are not eligible to come back into the US legally, and that Trumpâs and Rubioâs positions âarenât consistent with rule of law.â

Trump and Rubio will either keep illegals here or bring them back. Cruz will find them and deport them -- as many as we possibly can.
More and more lies by Cruz...
Too little too late, Ted.
Cruz has flipped on immigration issues in the past.
To counter the deportations Mr Goldman Sachs would increase H1Bs 10,000 %
Cruz, the Harvard-trained lawyer turned DC politician, flies further off the rails.
I am ashamed to have once considered him my first choice.
Ted: “Donald said once he deports them, heâd let them back in as citizens.”
Bald faced lie.
Unless his big money donors need some H-1B workers and Ted, the dutiful bought and paid for politician he is, will abide by their wishes.
And Cruz supporters wonder why the liar label stuck.
Ted Cruz lies. Ted Cruz’s position as SENATOR in 2013, 2014 was to LEGALIZE ALL ALIENs. YOU KNOW THIS.
It is very instructive to go back and look at what candidates Cruz, Rubio & Trump thought was important and mentioned in their announcement speeches. This was the time to present what issues THEY thought important to them and and the American people.
Trump outlined so many issues while Rubio and Cruz just talked about Cuba and themselves.
Here is their (Trump, Cruz, Rubio) total remarks on IMMIGRATION..
Trump June 16 , 2015
When do we beat Mexico at the border? They’re laughing at us, at our stupidity. And now they are beating us economically. They are not our friend, believe me. But they’re killing us economically. The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems. (APPLAUSE)
Thank you. It’s true, and these are the best and the finest. When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people. But I speak to border guards and they tell us what we’re getting. And it only makes common sense. It only makes common sense. They’re sending us not the right people. It’s coming from more than Mexico. It’s coming from all over South and Latin America, and it’s coming probably — probably — from the Middle East. But we don’t know. Because we have no protection and we have no competence, we don’t know what’s happening. And it’s got to stop and it’s got to stop fast. (APPLAUSE)
I will immediately terminate President Obama’s illegal executive order on immigration, immediately. (APPLAUSE) I would build a great wall, and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me, and I’ll build them very inexpensively, I will build a great, great wall on our southern border. And I will have Mexico pay for that wall. He’s weak on immigration. He’s in favor of Common Core. How the hell can you vote for this guy? You just can’t do it. We have to end — education has to be local.
When do we beat Mexico at the border? They’re laughing at us, at our stupidity. And now they are beating us economically. They are not our friend, believe me. But they’re killing us economically.
Cruz Mar. 23, 2015
Instead of the lawlessness and the president’s unconstitutional executive amnesty, imagine a president that finally, finally, finally secures the borders. (APPLAUSE) And imagine a legal immigration system that welcomes and celebrates those who come to achieve the American dream.
(Cruz’s speech was all about him and your imagination!)
Marco Rubio April 13, 2015 “modernize our immigration laws”
Yep...THAT is it....except for this..
En este pais, ustedes van a poder lograr todas las cosas que nosotros no pudimos. (translated: “In this country, you will achieve all the things we never could.”)
MOTORHEAD - Too Late Too Late
Cruz would have run away with the primary and Trump never would have gotten in the race if Cruz had said these things (specifically ‘seek out and deport’) before Trump had.
Do you have that video?
Folks, if you're reading this, you know what needs to happen.
If you can, please support the forum at this time. Thank you.
If he had talked like this a year ago when he was the first to announce, there may have been no Trump campaign.
But he didn’t.
What more needs to be added. Good work Freepers!
.....and the obligatory
Teddy is LYING; he has great difficulty with the truth; as do you!
Touchback Trump will now go on Twitter and threaten to sue.
Does that mean no more teddy bears and soccer balls with Glenn Beck?
This is it for Ted. He’s used his senate seat to get here but no one there wants him back, they won’t even defend him.
