Ted Cruz Would 'Absolutely' Have Donald Trump Build Border Wall

Ted Cruz speaking at Values Voter Summit in Washington D.C. in October 2011

Should Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas become president of the United States, he would "absolutely" employ Donald Trump to build a wall separating the U.S.-Mexico border.

Cruz discussed his plans to address immigration as president with Boston talk radio host Jeff Kuhner on Dec. 2, according to WRKO. Kuhner asked Cruz if he would build a wall, and if so, whether he would bring in fellow GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump as the head of the project.

"Absolutely yes, on both fronts," Cruz answered with a laugh. "And Jeff, as you know, I have laid out a very, very detailed immigration plan, it's on our website TedCruz.org. It's 11 pages, single space. It is the most aggressive serious plan to secure the borders."

The plan he refers to is indeed long, detailed and posted on his website, where he proposes to "build a wall that works."

"I will fulfill the promise Congress made to the American people almost 10 years ago by completing all 700 miles of priority fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border, and dedicate the resources necessary to replace all single-layer fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border to build a fence that keeps people out and that is technology-supported and law enforcement-accessible," a portion of the plan reads. "If other nations, such as Israel, can build an effective border wall, the United States certainly can."

He promises to increase surveillance at the border, hold the Department of Homeland Security responsible for what he calls their "failures," and further discourage illegal immigration by both enacting and enforcing harsher immigration laws.

"The unsecured border with Mexico invites illegal immigrants, criminals, and terrorists to tread on American soil," Cruz says on the website. "Millions of people from all over the world, including from hostile nations and terrorist havens, have been apprehended at our southern border – and many who make it through are never caught. This is a failure of the highest order."
