Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, defended Trump’s policy of separating American-born children of illegal immigrants from their families during an interview Monday afternoon.
While Cruz admitted that such cases are tragic, he said they are inevitable when their family members illegally cross borders.
“There’s actually a court order that prevents keeping the kids with the parents when you put the parents in jail. So when you see reporters, when you see Democrats saying don’t separate kids from their parents, what they’re really saying is don’t arrest illegal aliens,” Cruz told KERA, a Dallas public radio station, in an interview that aired Monday afternoon.
The article goes on to state the following:
“There is a reason why under the Obama administration that often didn’t happen because when they apprehended people here illegally, they just let them go. And when you let them go, you didn’t separate children from parents,” Cruz said. “There’s no doubt that illegal immigration causes human tragedies and many of those tragedies are visited on kids.”
“Let’s say an American citizen gets arrested for a crime – for murder, for burglary, for whatever – you’re separated from your children. You’re put in prison…. That is the inevitable consequence of somebody being arrested for a crime,” Cruz said, adding, “This is an issue that I think the media has largely constructed because what’s shifted is that the Trump administration is endeavoring when people cross illegally, to arrest them, not to let them go.”
According to the report, more than 30 Democratic senators filed a bill titled the Keep Families Together Act last week, aimed at halting the existing policy.
