Yes. I really dont see how Trumps positions (anti-immigration, for example) are much more reactionary that Cruz or Rubio.
*Sen. Ted Cruz said Monday that he’s tougher on immigration than Donald Trump.
Speaking with people after a campaign event in Boone, Iowa, the Texas Republican said in response to a question that he agrees with Trump’s assertion that all undocumented immigrants should be deported.
“Absolutely, yes,” he said. And then he went further.
“And in fact, look, there’s a difference,” he said, according to a video of the exchange first reported by BuzzFeed. “He’s advocated allowing folks to come back in and become citizens. I oppose that.”
Cruz was asked by reporters at a campaign stop in Winterset, Iowa, later Monday if he thought there should be exceptions for deportations.
“I believe we should enforce the law,” he said. “The law requires that anyone here illegally who is apprehended should be deported.”*
*This now has Ted Cruz positioned as the Republican candidate with the most hardline position on immigration.
NumbersUSA, a prominent immigration restriction group, keeps an ongoing scorecard on 2016 presidential candidates and since updated on March 4, Ted Cruz has an “A” and Trump a “B+”.*
I’d welcome someone to show a major issue where Trump is far to the right of the other candidates- or in any case, well off the GOP platform.
The GOP simply failed to have any Moderate Conservatives at all this election. Every candidate pushed as far right as possible.
