Ted Cruz - "Syrian Muslims not facing genocide the way Christians are"

http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/syrian-muslims-facing-genocide-christians-ted-cruz/story?id=35264285

Sen. Ted Cruz defended his call to allow only Syrian Christian refugees into the United States, saying it wouldn't be difficult to screen for religion.

"At the end of the day it's not that complicated. There's no history of ISIS terrorists embedding in the Christian community and pretending to be Christian," Cruz said in an exclusive interview with ABC News' Chief White House Correspondent Jon Karl.

"If that were occurring, we would work to prevent it. And any refugee coming into this country should be thoroughly vetted, I'm not saying that anyone should be exempted from vetting."

Cruz is one of several presidential candidates in the days since the terrorist attacks in Paris to criticize and call for changes to U.S. plans to bring in Syrian refugees. Cruz said he plans to propose legislation to ban Syrian Muslims from coming to the United States.

2. Will this come up at the next Republican debate?

Or would asking Sen. Cruz about his lunatic pronouncements be too hard a question?
