Throughout the 2016 primary campaign, I was critical of Cruz' actions and seemingly empty rhetoric to the liberty wing of the party. More evidence that Cruz is not the principled defender of the constitution that he claims to be:
Some of you might recall back in March when Cruz advocated "empowering law enforcement to patrol and secure Muslim neighborhoods". I mused at the time that his vague language could be supportive of more intrusive and expansive warrantless surveillance. I think Cruz' most recent vote is lends credence to that supposition.
BTW, Cruz still hasn't co-sponsored S. 255 - FAIR Act (reining in civil asset forfeiture abuse).
