Ted Cruz: Unlike Donald Trump, I won’t let deported illegals back in to become citizens

posted at 2:01 pm on January 5, 2016 by Allahpundit

Via BuzzFeed, I wonder if Cruz knew he was being recorded here or if he didn’t and went further in criticizing He Who Must Not Be Shamed than he otherwise might have. He strikes me as the sort of pol who operates on the assumption that he’s being taped even when he’s in the bathroom, which, if so, means this was a deliberate salvo at Trump — probably in reply to Trump falsely claiming this weekend that Cruz didn’t support a border wall until Trump started pushing the idea. At long last, the amnesty war between the two populists has begun. Is it mutually assured destruction?

If the audio’s not clear, BuzzFeed has a transcript. The key bit is where Cruz says of Trump, “look, there’s a difference. He’s advocated allowing folks to come back in and become citizens. I oppose that.” Trump has indeed said he’d let the “good” illegals come back in after they’ve been deported; lots of border hawks, me included, have flagged that as evidence that Trump’s not as opposed to forms of amnesty as he seems. Until now, though, none of the other top-tier candidates have had the guts to make that point against him. Rubio, Bush, and Christie are all too compromised on immigration to get in a war of words about it with Trump, and Cruz hasn’t wanted to jeopardize his nonaggression pact with Trump until it’s absolutely necessary. Evidently he decided last night that Trump questioning his support for a border wall is dangerous enough to him that now it’s necessary to engage. Presumably Trump responds by amplifying Rubio’s claim that Cruz really did want more work permits in the Gang of Eight bill, and then Cruz retaliates by — well, if history is any guide, probably by posting a drawing of a heart with “DT + TC = BFF” on his Twitter account. It’ll be a short war, unless Cruz starts to slide in Iowa.

Or will it? This isn’t the first jab Cruz has taken at Trump in the past 24 hours — although yesterday’s was light, even by Cruz standards:

“Listen, politicians behave a certain way when they are panicking,” he told NBC in an exclusive interview aboard his campaign bus. “And they engage in attacks, they engage in personal attacks, that’s human nature. I understand that. I am not going to get drawn into that muck.”

Cruz has increasingly come under fire from fellow GOP candidates as he has risen in primary polls. On Monday, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio alluded to Cruz’s foreign policy stances, knocking “isolationist candidates more passionate about weakening our intelligence capabilities than about destroying our enemies.” Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum released a campaign ad mocking Cruz’s infamous reading of the Dr. Seuss classic “Green Eggs and Ham” during a filibuster-like speech on the Senate floor in 2013. And last month, Donald Trump appeared to question Cruz’s religious faith based on his Cuban ancestry, telling a crowd in Des Moines that “I do like Ted Cruz, but not a lot of evangelicals come out of Cuba.”

Cruz demurred when asked by NBC News whether Trump’s statement constitutes “panicking.”

“I’m going to keep the focus on the issues that matter,” he said.

He can let Trump’s shots at his faith go because he has loads more credibility as a religious man than Trump himself does. An attack on his border-hawk bona fides is different, especially for a frontrunner in Iowa who’s touting an endorsement from Steve King. A two-pronged attack from Rubio and Trump claiming that Cruz supported amnesty in 2013 would do some damage, I think. I wonder if Cruz is prepared for that battle.

Exit question: Er, does this mean Ted Cruz now supports mass deportation? His new immigration plan, which he mentions here, calls for various new enforcement measures designed to encourage self-deportation, but as recently as six weeks ago, Cruz was unwilling to rule out the possibility that some illegals would be granted some form of legal status. That changed in December after Rubio accused him of supporting legalization; Cruz’s new line was that he would oppose it “today, tomorrow, forever,” i.e. categorically. Now here comes today’s clip. That leaves us … where? He’s prepared to forcibly deport everyone, as Trump is, or he’s prepared to let some illegals who won’t self-deport to stay in the U.S. but without the benefit of legal status? Gabe Malor says Cruz is saying the same thing he’s always said, that we need to enforce the law. True, but if it were that easy, Cruz wouldn’t have spent the past three years studiously avoiding giving a straight answer about what to do with the 11 million illegals who are here. He would have said, “Enforce the law. Everybody out. Period.”

So much for Cruz’s master plan to remain a bit closer to the center than Trump on immigration ahead of the general election, though. I do think he’ll continue to stay away from “Mexican rapists” talking points, but policy-wise, there may be no daylight between them before the primary ends.

The notion that this issue was never going to be brought up when it has been Rubio’s obvious achilles heel ever since he got in bed with Schumer, I cannot buy. It would have been the only logical issue where Cruz could have hit Rubio, and hit him hard. Having said that, I will concede that Trump has been helpful to the cause with his stance and media exposure, and has indeed steered the GOP ship to the right, as this article proofs.

I am getting so f@#4ing tired of phantom candidate syndrome. Who the hell was going to use it against Rubio? Was it going to be Jeb, or maybe Kasich? I know it was going to be Cruz. He was eventually, in his good time going to get around to, right after lunch, using immigration against Rubio. QUIT COMPARING TRUMP TO CANDIDATES THAT DON’T F@#$ING EXIST.

DFCtomm on January 5, 2016 at 4:31 PM

Trump and Cruz are simply handing the election to Clinton with this ridiculous talk. If either one of these guys is nominated Clinton can spend the campaign vacationing in the Swiss Alps and still win. Has anybody realized that these two have already talked themselves out of any possibility of winning Florida, Nevada, or Colorado? Where are they going to replace those 34 electoral votes while having to fight like hell for Virginia and Ohio? The shocking stupidity of these two and their supporters is going to kill any chances of them winning. The demographic changes happening in many of these states where a nominee has to win are real. They are not some left wing media fantasy. Even legal immigrants are appalled by the rhetoric of Trump and his ass kisser Cruz.

Tell yourself what you need to sleep at night, but if you aren’t retarded, then you’d know that if it weren’t for Trump we’d have another bland nomination cycle that would have produced Jeb as a candidate. Cruz may have made a few jabs at Rubio because of the gang of 8 bill, but they would have hit the floor with a dull thud, and that’s what Cruz’s campaign would have amounted to. He would have had a lot of support here, but absolutely no media buzz period. Strangled in the crib.

Jeffreyvdb on January 5, 2016 at 5:29 PM

I do not see this as an attack.
It is simply an honest assessment of Trump’s and Cruz’s positions.

If you see it as an attack on trump, then you believe that Trump is attacking himself, or you think that voters are too stupid to know what Trump’s position is and telling them what it is equates to an attack.

Neither of these arguments makes you look good.

I have already said it. Cruz is superior to Trump on immigration. On the muslim ban. and all around on Rule of Law and following the Constitution. This has tremendous value as a President, but is not quite as powerful on the campaign trail compared to Trump’s ability to talk.

Trump beats the hell out of everybody on being able to change the limits of debate. That has value, just not as much as a President as it does as a candidate. As a candidate is proves to be immensely powerful!

If only we Crump running for president!!! Cruz’s steadfast conservatism and Trumps gusto.

So, you would be aware then that Cruz was all for granting illegals legal status without any fear of deportation?

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.

The jury is out on why hispanics and blacks don’t vote Republican. My humble opinion is that their voting is based on the metric – “does the candidate care about me”. Romney gave the impression, that he would shut down his mother’s nursing home, to squeeze out a little more profit for the stockholders. I think we can win more minority votes with the Trump approach of promising to increase better paying jobs here in America.

He probably stole that idea from Trump. He’s a real copycat you know.

Trump elaborated that he would give these illegal immigrants, “Legal status,” not citizenship, but, “later down the line, who knows what’s going to happen.” He clarified that this meant citizenship would be “something I would think about, but I would say right now no. I’m not open to it. I would say legal status.”

Not sure that works very well with that pesky thing known as a Constitution.

The question for each candidate to answer is does his/her solutions pass Constitutionalist muster without some sort of creative reading.

Hahaha, so funny, Ted the tough guy. First off, Teddy has rejected whole sale deportation, so he really wouldn’t have that many to bar; most would still be here. And, Teddy’s main donors Robert Mercer, Wilks Brothers, and Neugebaurer, and his Silicon Valley biggies are all open border cheap labor globalists. Ted is their biatch. Then there is little wifie Heidi, who is a hard core GOP and Wall Street insider whose executive pedigree far outdoes Teddy in accomplishment and donor class relationships; and her GOP establishment pedigree is pure.

No thanks Ted … the “I’m tougher than Trump” schtick just don’t cut it. You wouldn’t ever be yapping about the border if it weren’t for the gold headed hammer.

Is that really how you want your Senator representing you?
Or do you just want him to sit back and let the bill go through with out any fight against it at all?
I do know that I want my representative using every ability they have to stop what I do not want and pass what I do want.

Cruz has always been a rule of law person, and he has always been that way since he was young. Kind of hard to argue that Cruz did not have that position before Trump when he said it back in 2011 including building the wall.

Trump on the other hand changes his position on things regularly. If you do not like his position today, just wait for a few days, it is bound to change.

You go back to 2010 and find a good position on Trump, but jump forward to 2012 and you see he has the polar opposite position, move forward to 2015 and he is back to the first position, my guess is that in 2017, when it is no longer beneficial to Trump he will find out that he really feels more like he did in 2012.
