Ted Cruz Threatens Action against Yale Law School for Discriminating against Christian Students

Ted Cruz : Apr 5, 2019  US Senator for Texas

Cruz said Yale's new policy was apparently motivated by a desire "to blacklist Christian organizations like the Alliance Defending Freedom and to punish Yale students whose values or religious faith lead them to work there."

(Washington, DC) — [US Senator for Texas] U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), chairman of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary's Subcommittee on the Constitution, today sent a letter to Yale Law School's Dean Heather Gerken demanding answers surrounding accusations that Yale students are being denied financial assistance due to their religious affiliations. In the letter, Sen. Cruz notified Dean Gerken of his intent to investigate Yale's policy which he believes is "unconstitutional animus and a specific discriminatory intent both to blacklist Christian organizations and to punish Yale students whose values or religious faith lead them to work there."

Jerry Dunleavy of the Washington Examiner today penned an article highlighting Sen. Cruz's letter in an article entitled, "Ted Cruz Threatens Legal Action against Yale Law School for Policy That Blacklists Christian Organizations." The article reports: "Cruz's letter raises the concern that those millions of dollars of assistance could now be unavailable to certain students or graduates based on the religious affiliation of the group for which they might choose to work. [...] In addition to the school allegedly violating laws against religious discrimination, Cruz also pointed to Yale's own equal opportunity statement, where the school promises its students that it will comply with both state and federal rules and will not discriminate against anyone based on religion. In investigating Yale Law School's new policy, there are a number of actions that the Senate Judiciary's Constitution Subcommittee could take. A subpoena would require the approval of Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-SC Beyond subpoenas and litigation, the subcommittee could hold public hearings with Yale Law students who would want to work at or be involved with religious-affiliated organizations who would be affected by Yale's new policy, as well as with other groups and leaders at Yale Law School. [...] If the Trump administration decides to get involved, it would likely be through the Education Department's Office of Civil Rights, which handles dozens of religious discrimination cases every year."
