Cruz is no Immigration Patriot

by Right Wing Fighter

Ted Cruz is clearly trying to use Trump’s position on immigration to gain in the polls. Cruz for several years now has emphasized his view that immigration is part of what “makes America great,” especially with his repeating ad nauseam his father’s story of leaving Cuba to come to America. Additionally, he has endlessly quoted Reagan’s “Shining city on a hill” line, one which has clear implications for immigration, what with the line that runs that ” if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here.” Additionally, Cruz’s push a few years ago to increase the H1B program by %500 proves that he does not look at immigration from the perspective of what is good for American workers. Cruz is a fairly cold political calculator, and he is merely copying Trump to gain points.
