Cruz Calls for Immediate Passage of USA Freedom Act

In the wake of a ruling by the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit on the National Security Agency’s data collection program, Sen. Ted Cruz released a statement calling for immediate passage of the USA Freedom Act.

“The court’s ruling today confirms what the American public already knew: The National Security Agency’s data collection program went too far in collecting the phone records of Americans. Congress should immediately pass the USA FREEDOM Act, of which I am a proud cosponsor, to strike the right balance between privacy rights and national security interests,” said Cruz.

“The USA FREEDOM Act ends the NSA’s unfettered data collection program once and for all, while at the same time preserving the government’s ability to obtain information to track down terrorists when it has sufficient justification and support for doing so,” he added.
