Ted Cruz's Best Line At The Debate

I watched the GOP debate last night and more than any other statement made by the candidates, this one by Ted Cruz stood out because, quite frankly, it hit the target dead center. The topic?

Illegal immigration.

Said Cruz:

When the mainstream media covers illegal immigration they do not see it as an economic issue, but I can tell that for millions of Americans watching this at home it is a very personal economic issue.

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.

I have a feeling he's right. If it's their ox being gored we'd never hear the end of it and they'd be pushing for stricter enforcement of immigration laws and the wholesale deportation of the illegal immigrants who took their jobs.

Turnabout it fair play, media drones!
