National Security

A strong national defense safeguards the interests of the United States and ensures that we preserve the blessings of liberty. To that end, Sen. Cruz has sponsored and introduced legislation to strengthen our national security.

A unifying moment for protecting U.S. security interests came in the spring of 2014, when both houses of Congress passed and the President signed into law legislation Sen. Cruz had introduced to prevent terrorists from entering the United States as U.N. Ambassadors, a plan Iran intended to implement.

In the summer of 2014, the Senate also passed Sen. Cruz’s rewards bill to seek information and find the Hamas terrorists who murdered Naftali Fraenkel and ensure that justice is served. In 2013, Sen. Cruz introduced similar legislation to offer rewards for information on the enemies who attacked U.S. personnel at Benghazi. 

In 2014, Sen Cruz introduced the Expatriate Terrorist Act, which would prevent U.S. citizens who join ISIS from reentering the United States. Additionally, in 2014, Sen. Cruz introduced the “Sanction Iran, Safeguard America” Act to re-impose more stringent sanctions on Iran and prohibit further negotiations with Iran unless congressional approval is reached.

In a bipartisan effort, Sen Cruz filed legislation with Sen. Kristen Gillibrand, D-New York, to condemn the use of civilians as human shields by the terrorist group Hamas.
