Watch Ted Cruz Unflinchingly Tell a Woman He Would Deport Her

At an event in Storm Lake, Iowa on Wednesday, Ted Cruz proved that he has a sociopathic lack of compassion when he told a woman that he would absolutely deport her if elected president.

During the event, Ofelia Valdez, 30, told Cruz that she was brought to the country illegally, but was able to remain here as part of Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

“As a DACA holder myself, I am worried about whoever comes next in the presidency and what’s gonna happen to people like us?” she said in a video taken by the Democratic National Committee. “I think of myself as a part of this community and, you know, first day in presidency you decide to deport, you know, people like myself—it’s just very difficult to process it.”

“I would note, if you’re a DACA recipient it means that you were brought here illegally, and violating the laws has consequences. And one of the problems with our broken immigration system is that it is creating human tragedies and there are human tragedies when people break the law,” Cruz responded in the whisper of a true sociopath.

“If I illegally emigrate to England or Germany or France or China or Mexico, and they catch me, they will deport me. That’s what every other country on Earth does, and there’s no reason that America’s laws should have less respect than the laws of every other country on Earth,” he continued. “We should welcome people who come following the laws, but there are consequences for breaking the laws, and that is part of what makes America the nation that we are.”

His comments were met with a hearty round of applause from natural-born Americans.

On Monday, Cruz differentiated himself from his radical white extremist opponent Donald Trump by clarifying that he is actually more extreme when it comes to immigration.

“[Trump has] advocated allowing folks to come back in and become citizens,” Cruz said after affirming that he would deport all undocumented immigrants. “I oppose that.”

“What if I got my puppy from a breeder in Canada?” A small child asked in the crowd.

“Great question!” Cruz said with a knowing smile. He tried to tossle the boy’s hair but the child recoiled in horror from his touch. “I’d kill him!”

“What??” The boy said his eyes watering up. “You’d euthanize my puppy?”

“Oh no!” Cruz said with a laugh. “I wouldn’t euthanize him because we need to save those drugs for the human criminals. What I’d do is I’d take his tiny little adorable puppy neck in my fist like this...” Cruz then pulled out a golden retriever puppy that he inexplicably had in a Knapsack at his feet. “And then I’d look into his loving eyes.” The puppy licked Cruz’s hand. “And I’d squeeze squeeze squeeze REALLY tightly until all the life drained out of him.” He demonstrated this as the crowd sobbed silently knowing if they spoke out, they’d be next. “That help?” Cruz then tossed the lifeless puppy at the shell shocked boy and giggled. “Now that’s what I’d do to the dog-something real gentle because it didn’t have any choice in coming. But a person...that’s another story. You do NOT want to look in my basement is what I’m saying.”
