Ted Cruz Wants to Build a Wall

During Saturday night's Republican Presidential debate in New Hampshire, presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz addressed illegal immigration by sharing a strategy to "build a wall." He then looked at Donald Trump and said, "I've got somebody in mind to do it."

Moderator David Muir asked him how he would handle "11.5 million undocumented people." Cruz replied:

"We’re going to increase four-fold, the fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft, so that you have technology monitoring an attempted incursion to direct the boots on the ground where they’re occurring. We’re going to put in place a strong e-verify system in the workplace, so you can’t get a job without proving you are here legally.

We’ll put in place a biometric exit-entry system on visas, because 40 percent of illegal immigration comes not over the border illegally, but people coming on visas and overstaying.

We will end sanctuary cities by cutting off taxpayer dollars to any jurisdiction that defies federal immigration law...And we will end welfare benefits for those here illegally."

Cruz was then how he would handle families in the U.S. illegally. He said:

"We saw just this past week the head of the border patrol union testify before Congress that President Obama had given the order to the border patrol to stand down, not to enforce the law. That is wrong. I will enforce the law, and for everyone who says, you can’t possibly do that, I would note that in eight years, Bill Clinton deported 12 million people."

Cruz's plan includes enforcing the borders, enforcing the immigration laws we already have and pursuing reforms that put the interests of well-being Americans first.
