Ted Cruz Calls For Police To 'Patrol And Secure Muslim Neighborhoods'

Updated at 1:13 p.m. ET

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Tuesday called for police in the United States to patrol Muslim neighborhoods in the wake of the attacks in Brussels.

"We need to empower law enforcement to patrol and secure Muslim neighborhoods before they become radicalized," the Republican presidential candidate said in a statement laying out how he would respond to terrorism.

Cruz's comments on Tuesday echo statements from some conservatives following the terrorist attacks in Paris last year. After Donald Trump said he would be willing to shut down mosques in an effort to combat terrorism, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said he would be open to closing "any place where radicals are being inspired."


The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) on Tuesday denounced Cruz's call for more law enforcement in Muslim communities.

"It’s really beyond belief that you have one of the leading presidential candidates calling for law enforcement to target religious communities totally based on the fact that they are of a particular faith," CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper told the Washington Post. "In normal times, this would be the sort of thing that would disqualify someone from running for dogcatcher, much less president of the United States. We call on voters to reject this. It just shows you what happens when you appoint policy advisers like Frank Gaffney and Jerry Boykin to your team."

In his Tuesday statement, Cruz also called for the U.S. to stop accepting refugees from countries with large presences from groups like the Islamic State and al Qaeda and for the government to "secure the southern border to prevent terrorist infiltration."

He also addressed the Brussels attacks in a Tuesday press conference in Washington, D.C., where he said that the U.S. needs to change its immigration policies, specifically discussing the visa waiver program.

"The attack in Brussels is in many ways the fruit of a failed immigration policy in Europe that has allowed a massive influx of radical Islamic terrorists into Europe. Europe is in the process of allowing policies to fundamentally threaten the safety and security of its citizens. That is a mistake," he said during the press conference. "The visa waiver program was designed for a different era when those from Europe were not perceived to be threats."

    On paper this idea makes sense. But when you really think about, the US doesnt have trouble with its Muslims communities like europe does. There are some isis supporters and all, but overall, the huge majority of the over million muslims in this country and pretty integrated.

    Now, imagine if you put cops all over muslim neighbors and put cops in mosques and 🤬 . Over time, that will lead the Muslim Communities in the US to get radicalized. So nah, i cant imagine this being a good idea.

    Cruz Defends Proposal to ‘Patrol’ Muslim Communities: We’re Not ‘Targeting’ Muslims

    During an interview on CNN this afternoon, Anderson Cooper confronted Ted Cruz over his proposal for law enforcement to “patrol” Muslim communities in the wake of Brussels. Cruz said, “That does not mean targeting Muslims, that means targeting radical Islamic terrorism.”

    He argued that all he’s talking about is monitoring for potential radicalization in the United States, like how New York City used to do, because the U.S. needs to stop being “afraid to confront what it is we’re facing.” Cruz likened this to sending more cops into neighborhoods with high levels of gang activity.

    Cooper repeatedly pressed Cruz on specific Muslim neighborhoods he thinks law enforcement should be patrolling. Cruz kept going back to New York and how officials worked with the Muslim community to report and prevent terrorism.

    we need to use them to spy on the Arabs and then have other spies pretending to be Muslim to go spy on both the black Muslims and the non-black Muslims we can't trust none of these people.

    There's plenty of majority Muslim nations in Europe:


    Albania, Kosovo, Bulgaria, Serbia, to name a few.



    You wanna see white Muslims?

    The hate that hate made breeding more hate...

    If black people simply evaporated from the planet and were no longer there to disenfranchise (and be the release valve bottom for "social order") the world would implode in a months time. "Americans" would be trying to make "Muslims" take our place in the prison system. All these muthafuckers would murder each other ASAP.

    Ted Cruz defends call to police U.S. Muslim neighborhoods

    Reacting to Tuesday's deadly terror attacks in Brussels, Republican presidential candidate and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz proposed more resources for U.S. police to "patrol and secure Muslim neighborhoods before they become radicalized." During an interview with "CBS This Morning" Wednesday, Cruz doubled down on that plan, despite criticism from top law enforcement officials like New York City police commissioner Bill Bratton.

    "We saw a horrific terror attack in Brussels and our prayers this morning are with the families of those murdered, of those wounded," Cruz said. "But what is important is that was not a lone wolf, that wasn't an isolated attack. It was radical Islamic terrorism. It was ISIS that has declared jihad, that is waging war on us."

    Cruz pointed to a former New York City police unit that targeted Muslims for surveillance as a model for his proposals.

    "New York City, under Mayor Bloomberg, had a program that focused on, worked proactively with Muslim communities to stop radicalization to prevent attacks from radical Islamic terrorism before they occur," Cruz said. "Now what happened? Mayor de Blasio came in and decided political correctness mattered more than keeping people safe. He disbanded the program."

    Cruz and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio butted heads over the issue Tuesday, during the Texas senator's visit to Manhattan. And early Wednesday, Cruz once again berated de Blasio and other Democrats for their adherence to more "political correctness."

    President Obama and Hillary Clinton and sadly, Mayor de Blasio, the elected Democrats, are so bounded up by political correctness, they refuse to utter the words radical Islamic terrorism and they refuse to be serious in defeating it," he said.

    NYPD Commissioner Bratton, for his part, told "CBS This Morning" in an interview Wednesday that Cruz has "no idea what the hell he's talking about."

    And when "CBS This Morning" anchor Norah O'Donnell noted that the NYPD program was never proved to work, Cruz shot back: "It is true that the de Blasio political henchman say that. It is also true that the NYPD said it provided valuable intelligence."

    O'Donnell continued to press Cruz on the issue, asking if he could list how many Muslims lived in the United States.

    Cruz responded: "I don't know the number off the top of my head."

    When O'Donnell noted that there were about three million Muslims in America -- and that it could be impractical for "overwhelmed" law enforcement agencies to police all of them, unlike in some of Europe's Muslim neighborhoods -- Cruz suggested that efforts could be concentrated on specific U.S. communities.

    "You have communities, for example, in Minnesota," Cruz said. "You have communities in Michigan with heavy concentration [of Muslims] and you have incidents of radical Imams preaching Jihadism, preaching Islamism."

    Cruz added that "there's a difference between Islam and Islamism."

    "Islamism commands that you either murder the infidels or forcibly convert them," he said. "You wage jihad. And here's the consequence of President Obama and Hillary Clinton and Bill de Blasio refusing to acknowledge what we're fighting: You end up with policies that don't keep us safe."

    This doesn't phase Black Muslims one bit. We have been under surveillance long before 9/11 and have had agents in our Masjids as far back as the 60's. This is nothing new and shakes no one.
