House approves measure to deny Iranian diplomat visa for UN

The House of Representatives ok'd a bill by unanimous consent to deny a visa for Hamid Aboutalebi. Iran has appointed Aboutalebi to be its Ambassador to the United Nations. But he was a player in the Iranian uprising which seized the US Embassy in Tehran in 1979 and took American hostage for 444 days.

The Senate approved by unanimous consent a measure to deny a visa for Aboutalebi earlier this week. Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY) crafted the plan.
