Ted Cruz calls for law enforcement to 'patrol and secure' Muslim neighborhoods
by Katie Zezima and Adam Goldman
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) said following Tuesday's terrorist attacks in Brussels that law enforcement should "secure" Muslim neighborhoods, a comment that drew swift criticism.
"We need to empower law enforcement to patrol and secure Muslim neighborhoods before they become radicalized," Cruz said in a statement issued after the attacks, which killed at least 32 people and wounded dozens.
Cruz spokeswoman Alice Stewart later said there needs to be a robust law enforcement presence in American neighborhoods where many Muslims live.
