Sen. Cruz calls out terror group for exploiting peaceful protests honoring George Floyd

HOUSTON, Texas – U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) condemned the violent terrorist group, Antifa, for exploiting the just and peaceful protests of those honoring George Floyd and called for strong leadership to stop the riots and restore law and order. As chairman of the Senate Judiciary’s Subcommittee on The Constitution, Sen. Cruz also announced his intention to convene a hearing on how to hold Antifa responsible for the violence and destruction.

“There are a great many people speaking out whose heart cries for justice, cries for the justice that has been the many centuries-long journey of this country. But there are radicals who cynically took advantage of these protests to sow division, to sow fear, to engage in murder, to engage in violent assaults, to engage in looting, to engage in theft, to engage in intimidation, to engage in fear.”
