Why Did Cruz Endorse Utah's Sanctuary State, Pro-Amnesty Governor for Re-Election?

Much to the shock and consternation of Utah conservatives who overwhelmingly gave Sen. Ted Cruz their votes in Utah's presidential caucus, the senator returned the favor by endorsing Utah's pro-illegal alien, sanctuary state governor, Gary Herbert, for re-election.

During his time as governor, Herbert has consistently taken the side of illegal aliens and has continued to build up Utah's sanctuary state status. Utah provides illegal aliens with in-state tuition, a driving privilege card, and unlimited jobs through Herbert's Salt Lake Chamber of Commerce supporters.

Another High-Profile Advocate for Illegal Aliens Bites the Dust in Utah

Illegal aliens in Utah, along with the Obama administration and amnesty advocacy groups, are mourning the forced resignation of Utah's pro-amnesty Salt Lake City police chief, Chris Burbank, who abruptly surrendered his gun and badge following his mishandling of a sexual harassment case.

Burbank's resignation comes after former Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff, another darling of illegal aliens, pro-amnesty groups, and the Obama administration, was charged with nine felonies, including bribery, illegally accepting gifts, and obstruction of justice.

Pandering on Immigration Isn't Going to Win the White House for the GOP

Following Mitt Romney's defeat in 2012, the Republican elites and their overpaid, habitual-loser political consultants blamed the loss on Romney's tough stance on illegal immigration. If only Romney would have been more compassionate and accommodating on the illegal immigration issue, he would now be president, according the Republican loser class. But the facts show just the opposite.
