    Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) speaks to voters during a campaign event at Seneca Family Restaurant February 17, 2016 in Seneca, South Carolina.

    Ted Cruz told Fox News Monday night that he would support federal law enforcement agents actively looking for undocumented immigrants to deport.

    "Of course you would," Cruz told Fox News' Bill O'Reilly. "That's what [Immigrations and Customs Enforcement] exists for. We have law enforcement that looks for people who are violating the laws that apprehends and deports them."

    The position matches the tone of Donald Trump, who suggested to NBC News in November that there would be a "deportation force" under his presidency.
