    There’s some fishy business between the US camps of Ted Cruz and Donald Trump, aside from Hillary Clinton and her comrade Bernie Sanders. Ted Cruz’s wife is a known proponent of the North American Union, and Ted himself embraced and supported illegal immigrants as he went to one of their camps.
