Ted Cruz: Court Ruling on Obama Exec. Actions Is a 'Turning Point'

Tuesday, 17 Feb 2015 10:59 PM

Sen. Ted Cruz has hailed a court ruling that slams the brakes on President Barack Obama's immigration actions, calling it a "turning point" in the GOP's fight against amnesty.

In an interview with conservative radio host Mark Levin on Tuesday, the Texas Republican noted the "major victory for the rule of law" also could call into question the constitutionality of the immigration actions.

"The president has put Senate Democrats in an impossible position politically," Cruz pointed out, according to The Hill, setting them up "to force implementation of conduct by the president that the federal court has concluded is illegal."

The administration promised an appeal, and put on hold its action to protect millions of immigrants from deportation.

"I think that appeal will work its way through the system," Cruz told Levin, according to The Hill. "In the Senate, it will come down to the Democrats and [whether they are] willing to blink."

But Cruz denounced Senate Democrats for "playing games."
