WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, released the following statement regarding the decision reached on Thursday by the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit about the National Security Agency's data collection program.

"The court's ruling today confirms what the American public already knew: The National Security Agency's data collection program went too far in collecting the phone records of Americans," said Sen. Cruz. "Congress should immediately pass the USA FREEDOM Act, of which I am a proud cosponsor, to strike the right balance between privacy rights and national security interests. The USA FREEDOM Act ends the NSA's unfettered data collection program once and for all, while at the same time preserving the government's ability to obtain information to track down terrorists when it has sufficient justification and support for doing so."
