Wow. Democrats and Republicans can agree on something:

U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Congressman Doug Lamborn, CO-05, today called for President Obama to immediately sign into law their bipartisan legislation that will prevent terrorists from getting visas to enter the United States as United Nations ambassadors.

“Congress has voted unanimously in support of a bill to reject Iran’s deliberately insulting nomination of a known terrorist – one of the 1979 hostage-takers – to be their ambassador to the United Nations,” said Sen. Cruz. “I thank my colleagues on both sides of the aisle for supporting it, and urge the President to act quickly. We, as a country, can send an unequivocal message to rogue nations like Iran that the United States will not tolerate this kind of provocative and hostile behavior.”

Congressman Lamborn’s bill, H.R. 4357, is companion legislation to Sen. Cruz’s bill, S. 2195, which unanimously passed the Senate earlier this week. The legislation now awaits President Obama’s signature to be put into law.
