Ted Cruz on Syrian refugees as the “tired, huddled masses”

Almost two years ago, Senator Ted Cruz can be seen on Fox News, in a piece that spins favorably on Syrian refugee resettlement, along with some of our favorite pals and globalists (David Miliband and Anne Richard), saying this:

(paraphrasing)

We have welcomed refugees—the tired, huddled masses—for centuries and we should continue to do so.   [Be sure to see our post at RRW on the Statue of Liberty and that d*** poem—ed]

He than cautions that the Syrian refugees should be screened, but concludes by saying, “we can do that.”

Watch the clip here (hat tip Richard at Blue Ridge Forum):

 

What a difference two years make! Cruz would surely not be sounding so chirpy on the subject today!

LOL! Or, more accurately what a difference a Presidential campaign against Donald Trump makes!

  1. Back when he gave this interview, we probably could have screened the refugees. Situations have changed and he has changed his viewpoint. Just because DT says he wont allow muslims here, doesnt mean he will actually keep them out. He tends to say whatever he thinks people want to hear, sort of like a snake oil salesman does!

      Kind of like Cruz, only he says what he means and tells folks to hear something else.
