(Campus Reform) Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said during an exclusive Campus Reform interview this week that Congress should not fund universities that discriminate against students when it comes to them exercising their rights to free speech.

The statement came during the same interview that Cruz explained how he would investigate Yale Law School over it’s alleged discriminatory policy toward Christian students and organizations, a story on which Campus Reform reported Wednesday.

The statement also comes just months after President Donald Trump signed an executive order that would pull federal research funding from universities that do not protect students’ rights to free speech, as Campus Reform also reported at the time. Beyond the billions in taxpayer money that public and private universities receive each year, colleges receive taxpayer money in other forms.
