Ted Cruz wanted to grill Former acting attorney general Sally Yates about Trump's Muslim ban at Monday's Senate Judiciary Committee's hearing about Michael Flynn's tie to Russia. He read a passage from the Immigration and Naturalization Act that gives the president the power to limit US immigration and asked Yates if she would "agree that that is broad statutory authorization."
"I would. I am familiar with that, and I'm also familiar with an additional provision of the INA that says, 'No person shall receive preference or be discriminated against in issuance of a visa because of race, nationality, or place of birth. I believe [that passage] was promulgated after the statute you just quoted. My concern here is not an INA concern here, it rather was a constitutional concern."
The best part is hearing Cruz sputter in feeble protest.
