Senate Democrats voted this week to block a proposed amendment from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) that would have blocked federal taxpayer money from going to institutions of higher learning that discriminate against Asian Americans.
The amendment stated:
To prohibit Federal funding for any institution of higher education that discriminates against Asian Americans in recruitment, applicant review, or admissions.
Every Republican Senator voted for the amendment while every Democrat Senator voted against it. Only three Senators did not vote — Sens. Mike Lee (R-UT), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Tina Smith (D-MN).
