WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, U.S. Sen Ted Cruz, R-Texas, released the following statement conveying his strong support for relocating the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. He is an original cosponsor of S. 117, the Jerusalem Embassy and Recognition Act of 2015:

"I am proud to join Senator Dean Heller, R-Nevada, in the introduction of the Jerusalem Embassy and Recognition Act of 2015 that recognizes Jerusalem as the undivided capital of the State of Israel and relocates the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. This bill removes the President's waiver authority that has delayed this important action, and requires official government documents to reflect this recognition by identifying Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

"Over twenty years ago Congress passed the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 with overwhelming bipartisan majorities in both the House and Senate. It is my hope that members of Congress on both sides of the aisle support this important bill. It is long past due for our government to finally and unequivocally recognize Israel's historical capital both in word and deed."
