Ted-Cruz-Truth

Confrontation within our system of governance is always a vital part of our political process, and so when presidential candidate Ted Cruz was confronted at an event held in Iowa by a soft spoken young woman, the good senator answered her honestly.

The question asked by the young woman was of particular interest to her in that she’s an “illegal alien” who entered America “illegally” as a teen with her parents, and under Obama’s new directive the “Dream Act”, she was allowed to stay.

The young woman asked bluntly if he (Cruz) became president, would he deport her?

If anything Cruz is a plan speaking guy, and that’s perhaps why he like frontrunner Trump, both hold a commanding lead in the polls.

Cruz explained that deportation is the result of a broken immigration system and people’s lives will be upended over it. But if you come here “illegally”, you must be deported. That is the law.

Ofelia Valdez, 30, told Cruz that although she was brought to the country illegally by her parents as a teen, she was able to retain residency due to President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, stating; “As a DACA holder myself, I am worried about whoever comes next in the presidency and what’s gonna happen to people like us?

Cruz responded by citing; “I would note, if you’re a DACA recipient it means that you were brought here illegally, and violating the laws has consequences.”

There’s no doubt that the issue of immigration is a highly charged and emotional one, however every country has its own immigration laws, ironically our neighbor to the south (Mexico), has perhaps some the toughest immigration laws on earth, along with some stiff prison sentences.
