Sen. Cruz Questions ICE Director Saldaña About Administration’s Recurring Failure to Enforce Immigration Laws

Continues battling illegal immigration in Judiciary Committee hearing

WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today continued to highlight the Obama Administration’s negligence in immigration law enforcement in the Senate Committee on the Judiciary hearing titled “Oversight of the Administration’s Criminal Alien Removal Policies.” 

While questioning U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director Sarah Saldaña, Sen. Cruz said, “I recognize that politically the Administration supports amnesty for people who are here illegally. The American people don’t agree with the Administration on that. You are charged with following the law, the law that Congress has actually passed, not the policy views of President Obama that contradict the law.”
