Ted Cruz Just Turned On Trump! He Is With The Dems!

Republican Senator Ted Cruz has broke with the Trump administration on the zero tolerance policy at the southern border. Cruz is reportedly announcing a bill to “keep families together”.

As reported by thehill.com
GOP Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas) said on Monday that he will introduce legislation aimed at preventing the controversial practice of separating immigrant families along the border.

"While these cases are pending, families should stay together. Children belong with their mothers and fathers," Cruz, who is up for reelection in November, said in a statement.

Cruz's proposal, according to a release from his office, would require immigrant families detained along the border to remain together "absent aggravated criminal conduct or threat of harm to the children."

It would also require that asylum cases are adjudicated within 14 days, approve new temporary shelters for immigrant families and increase the number of immigration judges.

"All Americans are rightly horrified by the images we are seeing on the news, children in tears pulled away from their mothers and fathers. This must stop. Now. We can end this crisis by passing the legislation I am introducing this week," Cruz added.

Cruz is favored to win reelection in bright-red Texas, but is facing an unexpectedly lively challenge from Democratic Rep. Beto O'Rourke, who has made immigration a key part of his campaign, including calling for the family-dividing policy to end and holding a protest Sunday at the site of one of the tent cities housing children separated from their parents.

"We decided there wouldn't be a more powerful way to spend Father's Day than with children who have just been taken from their fathers, children who have been taken from their mothers, children who won't be able to be with their family," O'Rourke reportedly said.

What are your thoughts? Is Ted Cruz trying to appeal to a certain voting demographic with this bill or do you agree with him?

BREAKING: Democrats Call For Hearing On Trump Administration!

The Democrats have called for a hearing on the Trump administration's zero-tolerance policy. Senate Democrats have formally requested a hearing on the Trump administration's policy that separates families at the border. The letter was sent to Chuck Grassley, the Judiciary chairman. The request comes in the middle of a heated debate on both sides, with even former first ladies Laura Bush, Michelle Obama, and Rosalynn Carter voicing their opinions. Here's what the letter says:
Dear Chairman Grassley: The Senate Judiciary Committee has a storied history of discussing and debating the most pressing issues facing our nation. Today. there are few issues more pressing, more agonizing, and more discussed at kitchen tables across America than the Trump administration’s policy of family separation along the Southwest Border. Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ ‘zero-tolerance” directive to criminally prosecute each adult apprehended between ports of entry — regardless of individual humanitarian factors or the fact that they may be seeking asylum - has caused the systematic separation of thousands of families, each day. Americans are learning of heart-wrenching stories where small children and infants, some as young as four months old, are forcibly torn away from their mothers and fathers and placed into the arms of’ strangers. Each day, Americans wake up to the realization that a parent’s worst nightmare — not knowing where your child is, what food and shelter they are receiving, and when you will see them again — is a reality for thousands of immigrants and asylum seekers. One immigrant lather was reportedly so deeply distraught when government agents used physical force to take his 3 year-old son away that he subsequently took his own life in custody. We cannot remain silent in the face of these horrifying stories. Therefore, we respectfully request an immediate oversight hearing to better understand the scope, nature, and impact of the i’rump administration’s new zero-tolerance” policy on children and families. Our Committee, unlike any other in Congress, is uniquely situated to examine the Trump Administration’s "zero tolerance” policy. Further, our Committee has a moral obligation to examine whether this policy is consistent with our most basic American values. We strongly believe it is not. We owe it to the American people o hold a hearing so that we can all, together, learn more about this policy being implemented in our name. Thank you for your consideration.
Here's the signatures of the Senators involved in the request.

While requesting a hearing, no solution to the immigration problem, or a volunteering to work on immigration reform was offered by the Senators. Let us hear your thoughts. Please share and leave us a comment.

I'm not "horrified" by any of it. Criminals are separated from their families everyday in the US. Don't do the crime if you can't do the time.

And cruz has never been a Trump supporter, so he didn't JUST turn on him.
