Megyn Kelly Grills Cruz And Rubio With Their Own Words On Immigration

Kelly called out both senators on their previous stances on illegal immigration.

Megyn Kelly challenged Sens. Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz on immigration policy, using their own words. 

"No, I said I do not support blanket legalization," Rubio said.

"You said 'earned path to citizenship is basically code for amnesty.' You supported earned path to citizenship," Kelly replied.

"Watch," Kelly said.

"I don't want this bill to be voted down," Cruz said.

"I don't want immigration reform to fail, I want immigration reform to pass!" Cruz said. 

Both argued they didn't flip-flop on immigration. 

And pivoted to securing the border. 

"Securing our borders is not anti-immigrant," Rubio said.

"We will secure the border," Cruz said.
