Ted Cruz's very nuanced view on deportations of illegal aliens



Ted Cruz has called for building a border fence and increasing the border security force, but has very conspicuously failed to talk about deporting illegal aliens. Greta Van Susteren spent 20 minutes trying to pin him down on the subject, repeatedly asking Cruz whether he would deport illegal aliens if elected president.

When asked, Cruz said he would enforce existing laws. When Greta asked him again if he would deport illegals, Cruz refused to say the word deport, curiously being evasive by asking Greta, "Well, what does the law say?" The law of course says deport, but it is odd that Cruz does not want to say the words.

And now I think I know why. Greta pinned Cruz down so Cruz admitted that he would use existing Border Patrol and customs personnel to enforce the law. Well, the Border Patrol only operates on the border. They have no effect on illegals living inside most of America. And the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Service makes, or use to make, a few spot raids here and there, but as a whole didn't seek out illegals in a systematic way for deportation.

What Ted Cruz seems to be saying is that the law would go back to the way it was under George W. Bush. If law enforcement encounters illegals, or if Customs on one of its occasional meatpacking factory raids finds illegals, they will be deported. But there will be no systematic effort like Operation Wetback to deport illegals here in large numbers. Essentially Cruz is hoping that with systems like e-verify that illegals will self deport.

This is a bit disappointing because as I have documented elsewhere, the federal government cannot easily turn off the welfare spigot for illegals so self-deportation will not be wholly effective. Cruz's position, while superior to most other candidates, is still not as good as Donald Trump's which does call for mass deportations. It's just a little disappointing that Cruz, who is forthright on so many issues, is not more forthright on this one.

Saudi Millionaire cleared of rape charges after he accidently fell into woman


For my male readers, can I ask you a question? Have you ever, purely by accident, fallen inside of a woman? I ask this question because this is what seemed to have happened to Saudi millionaire Ehsan Abdulaziz who was accused of raping a woman. He was cleared of all charges, however, when he made it clear that while his semen was found inside of her, it was because he accidently fell inside of her.

Chris Christie is a political suicide bomber detonating next to Marco Rubio


Chris Christie could be single handedly responsible for the political downfall of Marco Rubio. The Times revealed that he basically has no staff outside of Iowa and New Hampshire. He is banking on big poll numbers in New Hampshire to jumpstart his campaign. But while a candidate can expect a boost from a good showing in New Hampshire, they still need a state by state organization in place in order to take advantage of it. If Chris Christie expects to do well in New Hampshire and then suddenly build up in other states, it simply isn't going to happen. There's no historical precedent for it.

Trump alienates conservative base by calling Cruz "Unqualified" to be President


Donald Trump called Ted Cruz "unqualified" to be President. No, it wasn't because, like John McCain, Cruz was an American citizen born outside the US, as the tinfoil hat crowd insists disqualifies Cruz. Instead, it was because Trump alleges that Cruz acts like a "maniac" in the US Senate, in his often one-man effort to fight the GOP establishment.
