According to one Super PAC, Ted Cruz stopped amnesty for people living here without legal authorization.

Is that a fact?

We’re joined by fact-checking sleuth Gardner Selby of PolitiFact Texas to find out.

The Courageous Conservatives PAC, which supports U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, has attacked Rubio’s position in a radio ad in Iowa:

“We all loved how Marco Rubio took apart Jeb Bush in the debate. Wasn’t it great? But what’s Rubio ever done? Anything? Other than his Gang of Eight Amnesty bill, can anyone think of anything Marco Rubio’s ever done? Anything at all besides amnesty?” says the narrator who then switches to praise Cruz. “When Chuck Schumer and Marco Rubio tried to push amnesty, it was Ted Cruz who stopped them.”
