Here is how I see Cruzs actions.
1) He is SPONSORING a BILL, a legislation to shut down President Obamas Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
Cruz offered his bill as a plan to end the border crisis and the suffering that takes place south of the border as children travel to the United States by thwarting Obamas policy of acting as if the DREAM Act has already passed.
2) However, he still sees the need to PERSONALLY see to it that these children are shown compassion ( not by using tax payer money I might add ).
You feed and kids, heal them when they are sick, but still SEND THEM HOME.
I dont see any conflict or contradictions in his actions IF Cruz does that.
