Cruz Introduces Bill to Prevent Terrorists from Entering US as UN Ambassador

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) introduced legislation on Tuesday, S. 2195, to prevent known terrorists from obtaining visas to enter the United States as ambassadors to the United Nations.

Iranian President Hasan Rouhani recently named Hamid Aboutalebi as the nation’s new ambassador to the U.N., which is headquartered in Manhattan. A visa application to allow him to enter the United States has been duly filed.

Aboutalebi was a member of The Muslim Students Following the Imam’s Line, the group that held 52 Americans hostage in Tehran for 444 days from 1979-81. The organization is still active and his photo is currently featured on its official website that celebrates the hostage crisis.
