A young woman, who sounds as if she’s choking up, tells Canadian-born Ted Cruz that she has lived in the U.S. most of her life and feels like a part of the community and she’s worried he would order her and others to be deported if he becomes president. Without blinking, a stone-cold Ted Cruz tells her, yes—he would deport her.
Ted Cruz's father obtained political asylum in the U.S. when his student visa ran out. He then got a green card, he says, and married Ted's mother, an American citizen. The two of them moved to Canada to work in the oil industry.
