Posted on 04/08/2014 5:15:55 PM PDT by Former Fetus
The US Senate has unanimously passed a bill barring known terrorists from entering the United States as ambassadors to the United Nations. The move came in response to the decision by Iran to appoint Hamid Aboutalebi, who participated in the 1979 hostage-taking of Americans in Tehran, as its UN ambassador.
State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf had called the decision "extremely troubling", and at least 29 Republican Senators had appealed to the Obama administration to deny Aboutalebi a visa to enter the US.
One of those Senators was Ted Cruz (R-TX), who said he would not make do with a simple appeal to the President and promised to introduce legislation to block Iran's application for a visa for Aboutalebi, effectively barring him from working at the UN's New York headquarters.
"It is unconscionable that in the name of international diplomatic protocol, the United States would be forced to host a foreign national who showed a brutal disregard of the status of diplomats when they were stationed in his country," Cruz said. "This person is an acknowledged terrorist."
And late Monday night that bill passed unanimously in the Senate, after weekend talks with Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) successfully secured bipartisan support for the law.

The Senate??? Will wonders never cease!
Now Obama has a problem.
Not if just ignores the Senate.
Indeed Obama does have a problem. His latest infiltrator has (maybe) been blocked from entry.
HOORAY - 53-46 vote
The U.N. Resolution 2117 lists 21 points dealing with firearms control, but perhaps of most interest is point number 11: CALLS FOR MEMBER STATES TO SUPPORT WEAPONS COLLECTION, DISARMAMENT -—
HOORAY - 53-46 vote - The U.S. Senate voted against the U.N. resolution.
This is that brief, glorious moment in history when everyone stands around...reloading.
Now, Which 46 Senators Voted to Destroy Us? Well, let their names become known !! See below . If you vote in one of the states listed with these 46 legis..traitors vote against them.
In a 53-46 vote, the Senate narrowly passed a measure that will stop the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty. The Statement of Purpose from the Bill reads: “To uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.” The U.N. Small Arms Treaty, which has been championed by the Obama Administration, would have effectively placed a global ban on the import and export of small firearms. The ban would have affected all private gun owners in the U.S. and had language that would have implemented aninternational gun registry, now get this, on all private guns and ammo.
Astonishingly, 46 out of our 100 United States Senators were willing to give away our Constitutional rights to a foreign power.
Here are the 46 senators who voted to give your rights to the U.N.
Folks: This needs to go viral. These Senators voted to let the UN take OUR guns. They need to lose their next election. We have been betrayed.
He sure does! Let the son of a bitch issue an executive order allowing this terrorist in. Then watch the country get outraged ... IMPEACH, CONVICT, REMOVE THE TRAITOR!!!
After the House passes this bill with tremendous bi-partison support....what will anti-American, POTUS, Barack Hussein Obama,.......the soul brother of Iran do.... veto it or sign it???
I’m one of many Texans who voted for Cruz....thank me!
It would have been a slap in the face...
Oregon Ping. Notice Wyden & Markley voted to LET terrorist be admitted!
well,with the dem’s who voted yes, “But It’s For The Children”.
Talk about being skitz. Won’t allow the ambassador in, but allow Boeing and another corp. to sell stuff to Iran.
UN Ambassador Charles Lichenstein, 20 Sep. 1983 source"Maybe all those delegates should have six months in Moscow and then six months in New York, and it would give them an opportunity to see two ways of life. I think the gentleman [Charles Lichenstein] who spoke the other day had the hearty approval of most people in America in his suggestion that we werent asking anyone to leave, but if they chose to leave, good-bye."
President Ronald Reagan, 21 Sep. 1983 press conference, in response to Amb. Lichenstein's remarks.
It’s a good first step.
Now if only they would vote to expel the UN.
Issue him the visa.
A few years ago, my wife was visiting relatives in Vietnam. As she got off the plane, the cops arrested another passenger and carted him away.
The other passenger had been in prison for robbery, he broke out of prison and killed a guard in the process. He then somehow got to the USA where he lived for about 10 years. He got homesick and applied for a visa to visit Vietnam. They very eagerly granted him the visa. There really are some stupid people out there.
They should grant this Iranian terrorist a visa and arrest him the instant his shoe touches American soil.
(surely you are not surprised)
