Bipartisan Consensus To Continue Iran Sanctions

by admin

New legislation to counter the Islamic regime’s missile program passed 403-8.


Three measures opposing violence and human-rights abuses perpetrated by the world’s leading sponsor of terrorism passed in the U.S. House of Representatives.

On Tuesday, the Combat Rampant Iranian Missile Exports (Fight CRIME) Act (H.R. 3152) received 403 votes with eight opposing. The law will require executive branch disclosures to Congress of plans on maintaining U.N. sanctions against Iran’s efforts to acquire and develop missiles and drones. It will also increase sanctions against those who aid these Iranian military efforts.

Those voting in opposition included Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.,) Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Thomas Massie (R-Ky.).

The two related measures to pass were the Mahsa Amini Human Rights and Security Accountability Act with a 410-3 vote count and a resolution condemning Iran’s persecution of its Baha’i minority (413-2.)

“The House’s overwhelming support for this bipartisan bill makes clear that America stands with our allies against Iran’s aggression and that Congress opposes any efforts to circumvent U.S. sanctions on Iran’s missile and drone programs,” AIPAC stated.

Rep. Claudia Tenney (R-N.Y.) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) introduced legislation to ban Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi from entering the United States, an effort provoked by a planned speech next week at the United Nations.
