• Ted Cruz Hits Democrats HARD On Illegal Immigration And Sanctuary Cities

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) slammed the policy of sanctuary cities during his appearance on Fox News, stating that “the Democratic Party supports illegal immigration.”

    The 2016 GOP presidential candidate said that sanctuary cities have been a “persistent problem” in Texas.

    “You’ve got Democratic mayors who are elected from the far left and who decline to enforce the law,” he said. “It varies in terms of how brazen it is, it’s not always as brazen as San Francisco is,” he explained. “But it’s a problem when you have cities that are in the control of the Democrats and don’t want to follow the law.”

    Cruz said that some law enforcement officers and city officials won’t cooperate with federal immigration laws and have created sanctuary cities.

    “It’s because the Democratic Party supports illegal immigration,” he stated. “They don’t even call it illegal immigration. They’ve come up with this ‘undocumented’ term.”

    He added that Democrats are “endangering the security” of America because they refuse to follow the law.

    “In 2013 the Obama administration released 36,000 criminals, people with criminal convictions who were illegal aliens—released them publicly,” Cruz continued. “One hundred and sixteen of them were murderers, they had homicide convictions. Over 15,000 of the illegal aliens the Obama administration released had convictions for drug crime. These are Democrats that are endangering the security of this country by refusing to follow our laws and it’s wrong.”
