Cruz's Father Bribed Official to Enter the United States

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) frequently points to his father's experience leaving Cuba as shaping his views on immigration: "In my opinion, if we allow those who are here illegally to be put on a path to citizenship, that is incredibly unfair to those who follow the rules."

But even though the elder Cruz tells NPR he "came to this country legally" he also notes he "basically bribed a Batista official to stamp my passport with an exit permit."
