Once again, Cruz will fall short.

Cruz could filibuster the creation of concentration camps for Republicans and sink would want him to fail.
"...And these atomic bombs which science burst upon the world that night were strange, even to the men who used them."  H. G. Wells, The World Set Free, 1914

No.  Cruz picks fights he can't win. 

Never pick a fight you can't win.

Ugh.  Surely you didn't meant this, right?

Cruz should absolutely do this and conservatives should demand he gives voice to those people who put him in office and donated $4.16 million dollars to him last year.

What will conservatives do to Cruz if he doesn't filibuster this?  Nothing.  Just like they didn't care last time Cruz gave up on stopping Obamacare.  http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2013/10/16/ted-cruz-government-shutdown-deal-filibuster/2994271/ Cruz could have delayed the deal that passed 81 to 18 in the Senate.

Do it Ted.  I want that cloture vote on record.

Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military? Really!.....
...They have been in our country for many years through no fault of their own - brought in by parents at young age. Plus BIG border security
