Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) introduced a bill to stop Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi from entering the U.S. as the upcoming opening session of the United Nations General Assembly approaches.
Cruz, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, was joined on Wednesday in the legislation by Sens. Tom Cotton (R-AR), Bill Hagerty (R-TN), Joni Ernst (R-IA), John Barrasso (R-WY), and Marco Rubio (R-FL).
“Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi would already be excluded from entering the United States for the U.N. General Assembly if President Biden and his administration were enforcing existing statutes in good faith,” Cruz wrote in a statement.
