WATCH: Cruz tells woman brought to U.S. illegally as a child that she'd face deportation under him

- During an Iowa bus tour campaign stop, Ted Cruz had a tough message for a woman who voiced concern that she'd be deported if he followed through on a pledge to undo Obama's executive actions on immigration on "day one."

Ofelia Valdez, a 30-year-old special needs worker and activist, said she had benefited from President Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

"I think of myself as a part of this community and you know, first day of presidency, you decide to deport, you know, people like myself, you know, it's just very difficult," said Valdez, her voice nearly breaking.

Cruz listened with a sympathetic expression, then responded that "violating the law has consequences."
