Interviewed in February 2014, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz that Syrian refugees should be permitted into the United States and argued that this could be done without jeopardizing national security.
Since the Paris attacks, Ted Cruz has been a fierce critic of the Obama administration's policy to permit some Syrian refugees into the United States.
"It is nothing less than lunacy,” Cruz said citing security concerns. "It makes no sense whatsoever for us to be bringing in refugees who our intelligence cannot determine if they are terrorists here to kill us or not. Those who are fleeing persecution should be resettled in the Middle East in majority Muslim countries."
