NYT -Sharpening Attacks on Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz Urges New Immigration Limits

ORLANDO, Fla. — Escalating a confrontation with Senator Marco Rubio of Florida over immigration policy, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, one of his rivals for the Republican presidential nomination, introduced proposals on Friday outlining his own approach, calling for a halt to increases in legal immigration “so long as American unemployment remains unacceptably high.”

Mr. Cruz did not detail any plans to handle the cases of the many millions of people in the country illegally. But he heightened an attack on Mr. Rubio’s past efforts to forge a bill in the Senate to overhaul the immigration system, repeatedly assailing those who support “amnesty” for undocumented immigrants by suggesting, among other things, that the approach would help Democrats at the ballot box.

“If you’re supporting amnesty, you’re supporting the Obama-Clinton weakness and appeasement to radical Islamic terrorism,” Mr. Cruz told an often raucous crowd at a large church rally here. “If you are supporting amnesty, you’re supporting the Ayatollah Khamenei having nuclear weapons in Iran.”

Here's what I don't get: How does restricting legal immigration help reduce illegal immigration?

It seems to me that the opposite would occur.

4. It's interesting that the only Hispanics in the race are both Cuban.

The only Hispanic subgroup that has the right to US residence simply by stepping on American soil.

Is Cruz proposing to end the Cuban Adjustment Act?

7. Dangerous, yes. Man, the jury is still out.

So far, primate is as close as can be verified.

Hominidae is still in dispute.

Homo Sapiens is out of the question.

3. exactly. and to be honest

if i were living in mexico under the terrible conditions that exist in parts of the country i would try to cross the border too.

i'd also like to know who's going to pick our fruit? maybe those who are against amnesty know that if people become legal they will also have to be paid the minimum wage.

ronald reagan (the republican god) gave amnesty to illegals.
