Senator Ted Cruz is calling on the Justice Department to investigate NYC Mayor Bill deBlasio after the NYPD shut down a Yeshiva operating in Williamsburg in defiance of the executive order.
“The next time NYC’s mayor sends out a gleeful tweet about sending cops after Jews, the DOJ should investigate to make sure he’s not violating constitutionally guaranteed religious liberties,” Cruz wrote in a Tuesday morning tweet.
