Sen. Ted Cruz shut down Univision anchor and Fusion TV host Jorge Ramos on illegal immigration, by turning a gotcha question around into a gotcha answer, and giving the host a lesson on the rule of law.
“I think rule of law matters,” the Texas Republican said on Tuesday’s edition of Fusion TV’s “America with Jorge Ramos.”
After the two volleyed the immigration issue back and forth, presidential candidate Cruz asked Ramos — an open advocate of legalizing the millions of illegals currently in the country — what happens to an American who crossed illegally into Mexico.
When Ramos admitted that Mexican authorities said the American would be deported, Cruz slammed the ball for the win.
“So why should the United States not enforce our laws?” Cruz asked.
Ramos talked, but never answered the question.
Game, set and match.
“Listen, I believe in the rule of law. I think we should welcome and celebrate legal immigrants,” Cruz said.
He couldn’t have had a better message, or a better setting.
