Sen. Cruz: Bipartisan support of Congress and White House sends Iran clear signal that U.N. is not a back door to attack U.S.

WASHINGTON, DC -- U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, today released the following statement after President Obama signed his legislation into law to deny U.S. visas to U.N. ambassadors who are known terrorists, such as Iran's recent nominee Hamid Aboutalebi, a participant in the 1979 taking of American hostages in Tehran.

"Thank you President Obama for joining a unanimous Congress and signing S. 2195 into law today," said Sen. Cruz. "This is a great moment of clarity from the House, Senate, and White House. We have shown the world that when confronted with virulent anti-Americanism, we can stand together in defense of our national security. The combined bipartisan support of both the Congress and the President sends Iran—and other rogue nations—the clear signal that the United Nations is not a back door through which they can attack the United States of America."
