Sen. Ted Cruz says "there is nothing compassionate" about illegal immigration, and Republicans can still compete while being "unambiguously against amnesty."
TED CRUZ: I think we need to solve this problem one step at a time, you don't have to solve everything all at once, that is the fallacy of "comprehensive reform."
We need to start with actually securing the borders. One of the nice things is, existing federal law is quite robust, if you look at federal law, it is federal law today that there should be 700 miles of double-layer fencing built along our southern border.
The Obama administration has about 30 miles built. If I am elected president, we will build it. What is missing is the presidential will to get it done.
