The government that is in place in Iran today has a long history of human rights violations and spreads terrorist activities around the world. Iran’s citizens have peacefully and heroically demonstrated in recent years for change and a better life and they were attacked, beaten, jailed, and killed by this government because they stood up for a better future. I stand with you, the United States and the world stands with you. It is time to stop the terror tactics and the human rights abuses and to restore Iran to a place where they can be seen as a beacon for hope and peace and freedom.

The recent sham election that was boycotted is proof of the people’s choice for a free Iran. Ebrahim Raisi, a member of the 1988 “Death Commission,” was SELECTED by Supreme leader Ali Khamenei to be the next President. According to Amnesty International, and as addressed in the House Resolution (H.Res. 118), co-sponsored by 250 Members of Congress, thousands of political prisoners were executed in 1988. Imagine an Iran that exports peace, knowledge, and friendship. That is the Iran you are working so hard to create You work every day to make the dream of a free and democratic Iran come true. It is not easy work, but it is noble work. We are grateful for your dedication and devotion.
