Sen. Cruz, 84 GOP legislators call on Supreme Court to end discrimination toward Asian-American college applicants

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) published a press release detailing a brief that he and 84 legislators filed to the Supreme Court that calls for an end to discrimination against Asian American college applicants.
