Sen. Ted Cruz has a new campaign ad up that takes a passive swipe at fellow GOP White House hopeful Sen. Marco Rubio over immigration.
“I understand that when the mainstream media covers immigration, it doesn’t often see it as an economic issue. But I can tell you it is a very personal, economic issue.
And I will say the politics of it would 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. Then we would see stories about the economic calamity that is befalling our nation.
"If I'm elected president, we will triple the border patrol; we will build a wall that works; we will secure the border."
Points for the dark, ominous cloud coming over "the border."
It's notable that Cruz continues to take a "hands off" approach to Donald Trump, hoping that Trump stumbles and Cruz can snatch up his supporters by claiming he never attacked their guy.
