Cruz Respond To Critics Of Muslim Neighborhood ProposalPosted by Opposing Views on Friday, March 25, 2016
Ted Cruz was blasted this week for saying Muslim neighborhoods should face extra patrolling to prevent extremism. Here's why Cruz says those critics are wrong. Do you support or oppose Cruz's plan?
Should US law enforcement patrol Muslim communities? Ted Cruz took heat for his plan to “patrol and secure Muslim neighborhoods.” Cruz’s plan was a response to the terrorist attacks in Brussels and the Paris attacks that happened last year. Authorities nearly stopped the Paris attacks with surveillance operations, but were unable to catch known jihadist Salah Abdeslam in time. Cruz argues that securing Muslim communities could prevent similar ISIS attacks. But others say surveillance is prejudiced, and assumes all Muslims are dangerous. Is Cruz right? Or do techniques like these take things too far?
