Ted Cruz talks immigration, economy, and coal in Jackson campaign stop

Presidential candidate Ted Cruz, Texas (R) made a campaign stop Wednesday at the Teton County Library auditorium.

Cruz discussed issues ranging from the Iran Nuclear Deal, immigration reform, and the coal industry.

“There is no industry that the Obama administration has raged a relentless war against than the coal industry. Obama’s policies have resulted in massive layoffs of coal miners and families of miners that depend on the coal industry that have simply been ravaged by this administrations zealous assault and war on coal,” said Cruz.

When prompted about the subject of birthright citizenship, the Canadian-born Cruz was quick to say: “absolutely not”
“It makes no sense right now that we have millions of people coming here illegally to this country and that current law grants their children citizenship by virtue of breaking the law”

Cruz also touched on the Iran nuclear deal and his opposition to a nuclear capable Iran.
