As reported by CNN: (CNN) Texas Sen. Ted Cruz does not plan to authorize a special force to deport the undocumented immigrants currently in the country, he told CNN’s Jake Tapper, setting up a policy contrast with Donald Trump.
The issue was just one of many covered in the broad-ranging interview, which also touched on guns, GOP congressional leadership, so-called birther conspiracies and his mother’s voting record.
Cruz, who over the past few weeks has specifically endorsed deportations after months of resisting, said in an interview that aired Sunday on “State of the Union” that the U.S. should catch those who came here illegally under normal law enforcement practices, not through round-ups of the estimated 11 million undocumented people living in the U.S.
“No, I don’t intend to send jackboots to knock on your door and every door in America. That’s not how we enforce the law for any crime,” Cruz told Tapper as his campaign bus ambled across northern Iowa.
Trump has promised to authorize a “deportation force” to remove those immigrants from the U.S., pledging to do it “humanely.”
Earlier this week, BuzzFeed captured Cruz on video arguing that his plan was stronger than Trump’s because he would not allow those back into the U.S., while Trump’s would.
