Another one bites the Dust!! TED CRUZ = AMNESTY
Several years ago, we who want enforcement of our immigration laws, came to a conclusion.
ANY politician who says "Secure the border FIRST" was full of, excuse me, CRAP and means to have all the illegals stay here. THAT IS AMNESTY!!!
Ted Cruz: " I hope that this body will adopt the amendment I've introduced to provide real border security and to ensure that border security occurs first before legalization."
Oh, yes, yes, he says OVER and OVER that he's against AMNESTY! He even has a petition for us to sign AGAINST AMNESTY...but it doesn't say ONE WORD about NOT legalizing them or deporting anyone...it does say YOU want to increase legal imported workers! Do you read what you sign???
- Whereas, our nation’s immigration system is broken and must be fixed.
- Whereas, any immigration reform must lead with real border security first.
- Whereas, the Gang of Eight’s bill does not secure the border and gives amnesty to those here illegally.
- Whereas, legal immigration should be supported and encouraged.
- Resolved, I request the House of Representatives reject the Gang of Eight’s bill and instead pass legislation that actually secures our border.
In the past few days, Cruz has even gone so far as to admit he wants MORE legal immigrant workers!
Asked about what to do with the people here illegally.... he stressed that he had never tried to undo the goal of allowing them to stay.“The amendment that I introduced removed the path to citizenship, but it did not change the underlying work permit from the Gang of Eight,” he said during a recent visit to El Paso. Cruz also noted that he had not called for deportation or, as Mitt Romney famously advocated, self-deportation.Cruz said recent polling indicated that people outside Washington support some reform, including legal status without citizenship......Cruz has proposed increasing the number of green cards awarded annually, to 1.35 million from 675,000. He also wants to eliminate the per-country limit that he said left applicants from countries like Mexico, China and India hamstrung when they tried to gain legal entry to this country.
HE IS LYING! Mexico sends more LEGAL immigrants than any other country!!! WHAT is he talking about???!!
NO objective polls of US citizens conclude we want aliens to have LEGAL STATUS! Just the opposite...we want them DEPORTED! Cruz KNOWS, or he should, that in many local elections aliens CAN and DO vote if they are 'legally' here!
30 percent of those polled think that “most illegal immigrants, with some exceptions, should be deported”, while 23 percent believe all illegal immigrants should be deported.
Aren't you GOP apologists TIRED of being used? Aren't you tired of propping up these con men??? I'm still looking for anything where he's ever said the obvious...ENFORCE THE LAW!!!
But, THAT would include deportation, wouldn't it???
A good GOP lemming read the above WORDS of CRUZ and told me, "No, no he didn't say that, it's a lie!"
Then WHY isn't he objecting! Either Sen. Cruz doesn't understand the meaning of Amnesty or he's just another opportunist using us like Rubio/Norquist/Conda did! YOU decide, but use some facts to do it for a change!
UPDATE: A bit of missed information!
The Right Scoop on May 6th, 2013
........the firebrand Republican has nothing but praise for his colleague Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., as he pursues immigration reform.
“Marco has worked very, very hard to tackle the very difficult problem of how to fix our broken immigration system,” Cruz said in a interview with the Houston Chronicle. “And I think he has worked in good faith in a sincere desire to craft a solution as to how to approach immigration.”
Cruz added that Rubio was a “good friend” and “one of the strongest leaders on the national scene.”
In spite of his praise, Cruz maintained that giving illegal immigrants a pathway to citizenship was not something he supported. (WOW! He sure went around that 'legalization' thing, didn't he?)
AND HERE's WHY they are both wrong!
