(Washington, DC) U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) released a video that highlights the ongoing efforts to stop President Obama from handing oversight of the Internet to more than 160 countries, including Russia, China, and Iran through ICANN. The video includes U.S. Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah), Congressman Sean Duffy (R-Wisconsin), Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn (R-Tennessee), and Congressman John Culberson (R-Texas), who have helped lead the fight against the proposal approved by the U.S. Department of Commerce.

Today our country faces a threat to the Internet as we know it,” Cruz says in the video. “The Obama administration intends to give away control of the Internet to an international body akin to the United Nations. Do we want China, and Russia, and Iran having the power to determine that if a website is unacceptable, it’s taken down? I urge my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to come together to ensure that we protect freedom of the Internet for generations to come.”

The transfer is scheduled to take place on September 30th.
