WATCH: Ted Cruz torpedos Democrats for wanting “full open borders” in debate

Ted Cruz did a short interview with OAN since last night’s debate. In it he rips Democrats for admitting they want “full open borders” in last night’s debate:

Here’s a quick transcript of Cruz’s comments:

In one of the more stunning exchanges, you saw Democrats last night embracing full open borders. In the month of May 144,000 people were apprehended crossing into this country illegally. 144,000 – staggering number!

Well last night Democrats had a solution to that – don’t make it illegal for them to come. Repeal the criminal prohibition on crossing the border illegally.

Look those are radical, those are reckless views. That’s not where the American people are but sadly that’s where today’s Democratic party is.

He’s exactly right. Once they decriminalize illegal crossings and it becomes solely a civil offense, it becomes far more difficult to deal with this illegal immigration problem. In fact it will compound the problem by inviting everybody to just cross our borders illegally and take their chances – which will be pretty dang good – on hiding out in America and avoiding deportation.

Ari Fleischer sums up the Democrat goals nicely:
