Immigration

"As President, I will stop illegal immigration, build a wall that works, triple border security, and put in place the surveillance and bio-metric tracking to secure the border. Border security is national security. We need to stop Obama’s amnesty and enforce the rule of law. And we need to reform legal immigration to protect American workers."

-Ted Cruz

Gun Control

“We ought to do everything we can, for example, to be prosecuting the felons and fugitives who are trying to illegally buy guns,” Cruz said.

Healthcare

If I am elected President, I will repeal Obamacare and propose commonsense reform that makes health care personal, portable, and affordable. I will expand competition in the marketplace, empower consumers and patients to make healthcare decisions with their doctors, and dis-empower the government from getting in between doctors and their patients.
