Video: Ted Cruz supports rule of law, legal immigration

In a Sunday interview with the website Shark Tank, Sen. Ted Cruz stressed that while he condemns Obama’s desire to award the millions of immigrants who have entered the country illegally, he still supports legal immigration:

“I actually think the amnesty issue is broader than just another policy issue on which people can disagree,” Cruz said. “President Obama famously said his goal was to fundamentally transform the United States of America. And one of the critical tools he is using to try to do that is to allow millions of people to come here illegally.”

“There’s seven billion people on the face of the planet, and an awful lot of them would like to come here. Now if they want to come here legally and follow the law, great,” he added. “You and I both come from immigrant families who followed the law.”
