Cruz, Top Dem Have Tense Exchange Over Border Security "Let's put our cards on the table," Senator Schumer said during the Judiciar Committee meeting today. "The problems with the ... amendment, it doesn't do everything we would do on border security, it doesn't have the flexibility, I think ours is better. But the tigger is impossible to happen. And we all know the real reason -- Senator Cruz is opposed to a path to citizenship. That is the division here and no matter what we put in border security, he has said this himself ... he cannot support any bill with a path to citizenship."Senator Ted Cruz followed up by saying, "The Senior Senator from New York stated that the real reason why I'm supporting border security is that I'm opposed to a path to citizenship." "I did not say that," Schumer retorted. After a tense exchange between the Senators, Cruz ended his statement by saying that border security isn't an "abstract" concept in Texas and that our current immigration system is "inhumane." Cruz invited Senators to see the Texas border.
