Washington, D.C. - Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on the news that Apple is making it harder for law enforcement to access criminals' iPhones.

"If Apple is willing to store Chinese customers' data on a state-owned firm's servers, then it should be more than willing to cooperate with valid warrants from U.S. law enforcement. Criminals and terrorists should never take precedence over the safety of the American people."
