Sen. Bob Menendez suggested on MSNBC Tuesday that Sen. Ted Cruz may have “Obamaphobia.”

The comment comes after the Texas Republican said Monday that President Obama is the “biggest obstacle to passing common sense immigration reform,” because he wants a path to citizenship, Talking Points Memo reported.

But Mr. Menendez said that it was actually the bipartisan Gang of Eight that pushed for a path to citizenship, TPM reported.

“Well, I think he has Obamaphobia,” he said of Cruz. “The reality is that it is the Gang of Eight that came together — four Democrats, four Republicans — and said that we need a path to citizenship.”
