Participating in a Republican presidential debate here, they strongly argued that Apple should be forced to comply with the court order and asserted that otherwise this would allow terrorists to get away with things is bad for America.
"I think they should comply with that.If that's all they're asking for, they are not asking for Apple to create a back door to encryption," Florida Senator Marco Rubio, said in response to a question on Apple and supported FBI in this regard.
"Apple should be forced to comply with this court order. Why? Because under the Fourth Amendment, a search and seizure is reasonable if it has judicial authorisation and probable cause. In this instance, the order is not put a back door in everyone's cell phone. If that was the order, that order would be problematic because it would compromise security and safety for everyone," Senator Ted Cruz said.
