Washington, D.C. – House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on H.Res. 233, expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that Iran should immediately release the three United States citizens that it holds:

“Though the Obama Administration is currently negotiating a deal with Iran, innocent Americans remain jailed in Iranian prisons. This is a travesty, and the Obama Administration should increase the pressure until these Americans are brought home. As long as Iran imprisons innocent Americans, it is hard to imagine conducting good-faith negotiations over Iran’s nuclear pursuits.”
