Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz is lashing out at Marco Rubio and Donald Trump on immigration while facing New Hampshire voters for the first time since his Iowa caucus victory.
Cruz charged that Rubio led the fight for “amnesty” for immigrants in the country illegally. He also said Trump didn’t do anything to fight immigration reform as the debate raged on Capitol Hill in 2013.
The first-term Texas senator made the comments during a campaign appearance in Windham, N.H., hours after he scored a victory in Iowa’s leadoff caucuses. Trump finished second and Rubio third.
Cruz’s team aggressively attacked Rubio in television ads across Iowa in recent days as “the Republican Obama.”
