Senator Ted Cruz is sick and tired of the unchecked violence taking place in cities like Portland, Chicago, Seattle, and many other American cities.

On Tuesday, Senator Cruz said he will introduce a bill which would allow effected citizens to sue the cities for failed policies resulting in damages.
