Ted Cruz Breaks with Scott Walker on Legal Immigration


Governor Scott Walker recently made some waves when he started talking about the possibility of limiting legal immigration, in an effort to help American workers. Speaking before the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Senator Ted Cruz stood in stark contrast to Governor Walker on legal immigration. The candidate for President from Texas said that he believes immigration reform is necessary but he is a strong "advocate for legal immigration."

 "I think [Democrats] are treating immigration as a political cudgel where they want to use it to scare the Hispanic community and their objective is to have the Hispanic community vote monolithically Dem as unfortunately they succeeded in scaring the African-American community." 

We need to focus where there's agreement: securing the border and improving legal immigration," he said. "And once we demonstrate we can secure the borders, I think then we can have a conversation about people who are here illegally."

Cruz added that he tried unsuccessfully to pass an amendment to the bipartisan immigration bill that passed the Senate in 2013 that would have barred undocumented immigrants from receiving citizenship but still allowed them to obtain permits to live and work in America. Its failure, he said, showed Democrats were unwilling to compromise on citizenship at all costs.
