Kaus vs. Cruz

by Ramesh Ponnuru

Mickey Kaus trashes Senator Cruz for allegedly bamboozling people about his position on immigration, which shows he’s “in it for himself.” Actually, Cruz has consistently said that his biggest objection to the Gang of Eight bill is that it creates a path to citizenship. Here, for example, is a post from April in which I mention (and lament) this fact. (It includes my standard disclaimer.) It’s not Cruz’s fault Kaus hasn’t been paying attention.
