Cruz bill would designate Muslim Brotherhood as terrorist group
by Julian Hattem
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is trying to force the Obama administration's hand to label the Muslim Brotherhood as a foreign terrorist organization.
Along with Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-Fla.), the presidential hopeful on Tuesday introduced legislation calling on the Obama administration to designate the Islamist political group as a foreign terrorist organization.
The bill, called the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act, comes after a string of evidence suggesting the group supports terrorism, Cruz said, and after similar moves from a handful of foreign countries in recent years.
