[VIDEO] Ted Cruz Responds to Jeb Bush on Immigration: ‘This Is Not a Humane System’Posted: April 8, 2014
(CNN) – Ted Cruz addressed Jeb Bush’s comments about illegal immigration being “an act of love” on CNN Monday, telling Jake Tapper that he believes “we need to be a nation that welcomes and celebrates legal immigrants,” but at the same time “rule of law matters” and “securing your border is critically important” for any nation.
Cruz argued that far from being “an act of love” there is very little humanity to be found in illegal immigration.
“If you come down to Texas and you see the conditions, where you see photographs that are heartbreaking, of bodies of women and children left abandoned in the desert because they entrust themselves to transnational global criminal cartels who smuggle them in, who assault them, who leave them to die, this is not a humane system.”
Cruz also took a shot at “Washington elites’ attempting to pick the next Republican nominee who just want a candidate who “won’t rock the boat,” saying the only way Republicans can hope for victory is “to have a candidate that runs as a strong conservative.”
