VIDEO: Texas Senator Says Obama Pushing Citizenship Because He Wants Immigration Reform to Fail


“President Obama does not want an immigration bill to pass,” said Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) during a Wednesday interview with CBS News’ Jan Crawford.

Cruz, a darling of the Tea Party movement, has taken a no-holds-barred approach to tangling with the Obama Administration.

Said Cruz, “I think that the president wants to campaign on immigration reform in 2014 and 2016. And I think the reason that the White House is insisting on a path to citizenship for those who are here illegally is because the White House knows that insisting on that is very likely to scuttle the bill.”
