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.
“We know what is happening with these isolated Muslim neighborhoods in Europe. If we want to prevent it from happening here, it is going to require an empowered, visible law enforcement presence that will both identify problem spots and partner with non-radical Americans who want to protect their homes,” Stewart said. She gave few other specifics.
