(BIZPAC REVIEW) Sen. Ted Cruz lambasted President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Sunday for “engaging in debate divorced from the facts” and for “holding these kids ransom” by refusing to address the cause of the flood of illegal immigrants across America’s southern border.

And that cause is the implied promise of amnesty for illegals Obama made in 2012 to pander to Hispanic voters.

Speaking on “Fox News Sunday,” Cruz, R-Texas, defended a bill he introduced, that would bar the president from granting amnesty in the future.
