Skip to comments.Ted Cruz called for legalizing illegal aliens in 2013

A rather astonishing video has surfaced courtesy of the Rick Santorum campaign showing Ted Cruz, apparently during a debate over Marco Rubio's Gang of 8 "Amnesty Bill," calling for a provision that would legalize all 11-plus million illegal aliens. He even used the liberal code phrase "out of the shadows." I encourage you to watch the video and see for yourself. Ted Cruz has stood for securing the border along with Donald Trump and Ben Carson, but he has been conspicuously silent on the issue of deporting illegals. I think the reason why is now clear. He doesn't want to deport them; he wants to legalize them. Now, Ted Cruz would be the first to say he doesn't want to give them a path to citizenship, but, realistically, once they are legalized, the left won't long tolerate a class of people here who don't have citizenship, and the left will act, through the judiciary or the executive, to legalize them. So...

legalize or make citizen..
There is a very large difference.
Why did Jeff Sessions say that Cruz was responsible for destroying the gang of 8 bill?
It was another ‘Poison Pill’, he has a cabinet full of them.
So Jeff Sessions is now lying as well?
BTW do you really think there's anyone on this board who hasn't made up their minds about the veracity of this (bogus) charge?
I don’t want Cruz to be our nominee but this charge is prue bull shiite. It plays stupid “make believe” games. Stop it.
There really isn’t, Legalize is the first step, and everyone knows it..Ted did to.
If the left can do that, you think they're going to let 11 million be deported? If you think the courts truly have the power to grant mass citizenship to all illegals, then the whole issue is already lost.
Not this feces again, every piece of crap ever written about Cruz is true according to you guys while everything the least bit negative posted about Trump is a flagrant lie, even though it’s true. Everybody should do their best to post legitimate articles, no one is going to be swayed to or from either candidate with ridiculous hit pieces, I know I won’t be.
Is that the word to use to call a bill that you got busted for proposing or supporting, and now you have to back-pedal??
Bullcrap. If Ted Cruz proposed that, it was a gambit to force the traitors out into the open and commit themselves.
There are a lot of such moves in the Senate to force votes on stuff.
Amnesty is amnesty
I watched the Gang of Eight's bill from start to finish. I KNOW which guys were trying to derail the amnesty bill and which guys climbed into bed with the illegals
No, it's the same Poison Pill we have been discussing over and over again.
And here’s what Trump said in 2013:
And here’s what Trump said 7 months ago, the week after he announced he was running for President:
Even if it was true that Cruz wanted to give legal status to illegals in 2013(Even though its already been refuted by one of the main members of the Senate opposition, Jeff Sessions, who worked side by side with Cruz to defeat the bill.) then what are we to do? Vote for Rubio? Carson? Yeb?!... Kasich?!!
“legalize or make citizen..”
Before you make them citizens, you legalize them.
