Ted Cruz responds to Brussels attack by calling for special patrols of Muslim neighborhoods

Published

on

Texas Senator Ted Cruz called for law enforcement in the U.S. to clamp down on Muslim neighborhoods in an effort to stop them from becoming “radicalized” after the terror attacks in Brussels.

The GOP presidential contender came right out of the box Tuesday morning calling for President Obama to immediately return from Cuba in order to deal with the crisis in Belgium that claimed dozens of lives.

In a statement posted to his Facebook account, Cruz criticized European nations for allowing migrants into their countries, saying, “Our European allies are now seeing what comes of a toxic mix of migrants who have been infiltrated by terrorists and isolated, radical Muslim neighborhoods.”

“We will do what we can to help them fight this scourge, and redouble our efforts to make sure it does not happen here,” he added before stating, “We need to immediately halt the flow of refugees from countries with a significant al Qaida or ISIS presence.”

Cruz then made his proposal to single out Muslim neighborhoods in the U.S. for special — and likely unconstitutional — attention.

“We need to empower law enforcement to patrol and secure Muslim neighborhoods before they become radicalized,” he wrote.

He added, “The days of the United States voluntarily surrendering to the enemy to show how progressive and enlightened we are at [sic] an end.”

Published

On Monday, the Supreme Court handed down their decision in Virginia House of Delegates v. Bethune-Hill, shutting down the Virginia GOP's last ditch effort to rig the upcoming state legislative election taking place this November.

In 5-4 decision, the justices held that the House of Delegates has no standing to appeal the decision made by the lower court. The vote broke along unusual lines, with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg writing for a majority with Justices Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan, Clarence Thomas, and Neil Gorsuch, and Justice Samuel Alito writing a dissent joined by Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Stephen Breyer and Brett Kavanaugh.
