Ted Cruz may have a new disgusting immigration ad out, but this week he’s taken his heartlessness to an even deeper level. In a video from a Democratic National Committee tracker, a woman approaches Cruz with her personal story. She was brought to the United States as a baby with no real control over her immigration status. This is the only home she’s ever known.
“I think of myself as a part of this community,” she told Cruz.
Violating the laws have consequences,” Cruz said.
But instead of accepting responsibility for his cold and callous policies he looked her straight in the eye and blamed “our broken immigration system” for the reason she’d be deported under his administration. It’s like he’s fighting with Donald Trump to see which one of them can be the worst. In fact, this week he said he thinks Trump is too lenient when it comes to immigration policies.
“I think we should use any and all means necessary to prevent the president from illegally granting amnesty,” Cruz said back in 2014 when he threatened to shut down the government. Cruz even supports killing the DREAM Act which would help people like the woman in the video have a shot at the American Dream despite being brought here as a child.
Who knows what his reasons are, we can’t even begin to speculate, but Cruz himself has a citizenship that hovers somewhere in the grey area. So, maybe he shouldn’t slam the door on the people behind him.
