A member of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus called Sen. Ted Cruz’s stance on the migration crisis “absolutely unconscionable” at a press conference Friday.

Florida Rep. Joe Garcia had been asked what he made of the Republican House leadership “trying to accommodate and reassure some of their more conservative members, like Steve King and Michele Bachmann, and also take into account the concerns of some senators like Ted Cruz and Jeff Sessions.”

“As a Cuban American who realizes that I have special immigratory rights,” he said, “I am appalled that Senator Cruz, who not only received it from this from this country, but his native Canada–those special migratory rights–leads the charge to strip away people’s rights. It is absolutely unconscionable.” (RELATED: White House Says No Progress On Immigration Until Spending Bill Passes)
