Washington D.C. – Today, House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on House Resolution 791, his resolution supporting the protestors in Iran, which also serves as notice to the Iranian regime that the United States is watching, and the world is watching:
“This is a pivotal moment for the Iranian people. They are showing tremendous courage as they take to the streets to stand up to a government that systematically kills and brutally silences any dissension. We have seen these promising scenes before at times when there was ambiguity on the United States position toward Iran. This administration has made it clear that we support the Iranian people, we support freedom and democracy, and we will always stand beside those who seek it. Just like we did when protestors took to the streets in Hong Kong, Congress should come together to show our support for freedom and democracy.”
