Ted Cruz (R-Texas), conservative candidate for U.S. Senate, made the following statement today regarding President Obama's new amnesty policy:
"The Constitution places on the President the solemn responsibility to "take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.' President Obama has repeatedly defied the Constitution and flouted the rule of law. His latest decision to refuse to enforce our immigration laws is cravenly political, lawless, and wrong.
"We have a crisis in illegal immigration, and the federal government must get serious about securing our borders; this latest Obama policy is nothing more than an attempt to enact back-door amnesty, and I categorically oppose amnesty."
