Cruz Goes Trump in Iowa Ad: Earns Four Pinocchios from Washington Post

 

“Their misguided [Gang of Eight immigration] plan would have given President Obama the authority to admit Syrian refugees, including ISIS terrorists. That’s just wrong.” — Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), in this new television commercial airing in Iowa

Glenn Kessler in the Washington Post Fact Checker concludes that this "immigration ad earns Four Pinocchios for a strange anti-Rubio argument."
