If you dont deport them the judiciary will eventually grant them citizenship. It will take the ACLU, La Raza, and other anti American groups about a minute to file lawsuits after some establishment politician grants them permanent residency without a pathway to citizenship. Anything short of deportation is amnesty by default.

If Cruz had only been the first person in the race to say he would deport illegals. If only he had consistently opposed the TPP. If only he had raised the idea of a ban on muslim immigration.
He wpuld be running away with it.
Instead, on all three of these critical issues he ceeded leadership to Donald Trump.
Ban on Muslim immigration, lol. Just how would that work?
ICE: "Are you a Muslim?" Terrorist: "No." ICE: "Welcome to the USA, enjoy your stay."
Ban on Muslims is idiotic and impossible. So you want Cruz to act like a moron because morons will be impressed by dumb stuff that can’t be done? As far as deporting illegals, even Obama deports illegals. The problem is that no matter how much water you remove from a boat if you don’t plug the holes more water comes back in. And if you say Trump was the first to suggest building a wall I’m gonna smack you. How about explaining why Trump supporters are okay with "touchback" amnesty that Trump is suggesting? Marco Rubio's amnesty is a million times stricter than what Trump has proposed for instant citizenship.

The fine needs to be thrown out entirely, and this human rights commission disbanded.

As long as the right to keep and bear arms exists, freedom of religion is not dead. The question is how long we the people will wait before we realize that neither discussing this with haters on the left nor lawsuits work in a rigged system.

All my sympathy lies with the bakery owners, not the gay terrorists harassing them.

I agree with you. The week after this happened, they should have moved to ensure that they were no longer subject to dictates of the Oregon state government and taken every dime with them.

Just when did this become a country where citizens answer to “human rights commissions”?
I'm going to start a "Hateful cakes" company. Wherein we specializing in baking hateful cakes for everyone ! But what we will NOT do- is bake cakes which are non confrontational, loving, etc.
Hate Jews? WE'LL BAKE IT.
Hate Muslims? WE'LL BAKE IT.
Hate Christians? WE'LL BAKE IT.
Hate Black people? WE'LL BAKE IT.
Hate Homosexuals? WE'LL BAKE IT.
Hate Hillary or Obama? WE'LL BAKE IT AND DELIVER IT FOR FREE.

Why is everyone assuming this is a shot at Cruz and not Rubio with his confused religious background and recent appeals to evangrlicals?

This election has become a litmus test. If you are backing anyone but Trump/Cruz, you are supporting the status quo.
It's a litmus test alright.
Cruz siding with Obama in arming our enemies.
- Ted Cruz, member of The Senate Armed Services Committee, voted YES on the markup of the 2015 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which included a provision that would authorize the Department of Defense to train and equip Syrian forces.
...and then there's George Soros' business partner.

Trump. If it wasn’t for him, amnesty would be a done deal and this Republican field -Cruz included – wouldn’t even raise the issue.
 December 16, 2015 at 8:37am
It is very simple. All he has to do is say I will report all illegal aliens. Trump did it, but he won’t touch the deportation word with a ten foot pole. No “I don’t intend to” or “I don’t support a pathway to citizenship” or any other ivy league law school weasel words. Deport illegal aliens.
 December 16, 2015 at 8:32am
The problem with “being against amnesty” is that it is a meaningless term anymore. With Trump that means deportation. With others that means letting them stay without a so called pathway to citizenship – at least until a Federal judge decrees that they have one, which you know will happen. So in terms of practical impact there is no difference between the Cruz/Rubio positions.

Another day, another lie from The Blaze. The article doesn’t really substantiate the headline now, does it. Buried 2/3rds of the way down is the fact that both men said they liked the other and many supporters like both. Doesn’t really fit Beck’s narrative that the first man to call for deporting illegals and a Muslim refugee ban is a liberal progressive.
December 8, 2015 at 7:36am
While I agree that you can’t be strong on the second amendment if you support denying 2nd amendment rights to citizens on a government list…in no way did he say that in the interview. This article is basically false.
December 8, 2015 at 7:33am
Well, I have to say that I fell for the Blaze’s hit piece.
After viewing the interview, Trump actually has no intention of banning gun ownership just because they are on a list. If they are on the list *AND* they have terrorist connections *THEN* he’s going to charge them and ban them from gun ownership.
I guess that Beck and company’s irrational hatred of Trump mean that you can no longer trust this site for election 2016 coverage.
December 8, 2015 at 7:24am
I’ll go further than that. Unless you”re a US citizen yoiu shouldn’t be allowed to own a gun. We restrict noncitizens from participating in the political process and insofar as the second amendment is part of that political process I’m totally fine with that.
December 8, 2015 at 7:08am
I’m right there with you. As much as I like everything else Trump has said, you cannot be pro-2nd amendment if you support denying people the right to keep and bear arms just because they are on some nebulous government list.
Facts about the no fly list: at the end of the Bush administration, there were 47000 people on it. Today, that number stands at 700,000. It is estimated that of that 700,000 some 280,000 have no identifiable connection to terrorism but remain on the list. Many famous people have gotten on that list, from a Fox News contributor to a Senator.
Using something like this to deny people a constitutional right without a formal charge and conviction should be completely off the table.
