Cruz: Immigration Bill 'Makes The Problem Worse'

On Thursday, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) spoke out at the Senate Judiciary Committee with regard to the so-called Gang of 8’s immigration bill. Cruz stated that the bill might do more harm than good: “Number one, it doesn’t stop illegal immigration. If anything it makes the problem worse by not securing the border and by incentivizing future illegal immigration. Number two, I believe in its current form, the bill will not become law, and if Congress cannot pass immigration reform, that is a terrible outcome.”

Cruz added that Democrats had stripped border security measures from the bill: “Unfortunately, every Democrat on this committee voted against measures that would put real teeth into border security and that would have improved legal immigration.”
