Reacting to Tuesday’s terrorist attacks in Belgium, Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz proposed a strategy for America: “We need to empower law enforcement to patrol and secure Muslim neighborhoods.”

Cruz’s spokeswoman said police already track areas where, for example, they suspect gang activity. But Democratic candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, along with the Anti-Defamation League and other organizations, responded Tuesday that tracking citizens because of their religion is very different from tracking potential criminal behavior and is unacceptable.

And what about those who live in so-called Muslim neighborhoods? On Twitter, their reactions, some hilarious and some heartfelt, told Cruz just what they see on the ground in the places where they live.
