Senator Ted Cruz, GOP Presidential Hopeful weighed in on how he would handle #BlackLivesMatter on the Michael Medved show. Cruz also elaborated, after being asked, how we should end granting ‘automatic birthright citizenship’ to the children of those who are here illegally. He noted that that has been his position since 2011.
As Reported By The Hill:
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said Wednesday that he “absolutely” supports ending birthright citizenship, suggesting that has been his position for years.
“Absolutely. We should end granting automatic birthright citizenship to the children of those who are here illegally,” Cruz, who is running for president, said during an interview with the Michael Medved Show. “That has been my position from the very first day of my running for the Senate.”
Cruz’s comments come after Donald Trump’s immigration policy proposal has sparked a debate among Republican presidential candidates and forced the issue into the media spotlight. The plan, released by Trump on Sunday, called for building a wall along the southern border and changing the 14th Amendment to end so-called guaranteed citizenship to those born inside the United States.
