Washington, D.C.– House Foreign Affairs Chairman Michael McCaul released a statement on House passage of a bipartisan resolution, which he co-led with Rep. Claudia Tenney (R-NY), commending the bravery and courage of Iranian protestors demonstrating against the Iranian regime’s human rights abuses.

“I am proud that our bipartisan resolution has again overwhelmingly passed the House today. This resolution strongly reaffirms the American people’s support for the brave Iranian people speaking out against the Iranian regime’s human rights abuses. As the regime continues to escalate its violent crackdown, we must continue to do all we can to support the Iranian people’s right to self-determination and ensure the regime is held to account for its crimes. That means no sanctions relief for the regime, and fully enforcing all of our existing sanctions.”
