Ted Cruz followed Donald Trump saying he’d send 11 million people home, and John Kasich saying we can’t really do that.
The winning moment was when Senator Ted Cruz followed up with this:
“And, you know, I understand that when the mainstream media covers immigration, it doesn’t often see it as an economic issue,” he continued. “But, I can tell you for millions — of Americans at home watching this, it is a very personal economic issue. And, I will say the politics of it will be very, very different if a bunch of lawyers or bankers were crossing the Rio Grande. Or if a bunch of people with journalism degrees were coming over and driving down the wages in the press.”
“And, I will say for those of us who believe people ‘ought to come to this country legally, and we should enforce the law, we’re tired of being told it’s anti-immigrant,” he said. “It’s offensive.”
He also said if Republicans join Democrats in granting amnesty, we will lose.
The Fox moderators were given the heads up by CNN Money, saying they were better than CNBC – not a high bar.
The audience was filled with liberal journalists and the debate was run by the RNC. The latest poll said only 7% are Conservatives so the password to use the Wifi was “Stop Hillary!”
The losers of the night were Jeb Bush who still stands out as unimpressive and John Kasich, especially Kasich, who looked desperate and annoying.
Rubio, Cruz and Paul did well while the others didn’t hurt themselves.
