McMorris Rodgers Statement on Resolution on Iranian Protests

WASHINGTON, D.C. (January 9, 2017) – Eastern Washington Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) today released the following statement after the House passed H. Res. 676, a resolution condemning the Iranian regime for its crackdown of legitimate protests. McMorris Rodgers is also a cosponsor of this resolution.

“Not only does the Iranian regime make the world less safe as the largest state sponsor of terrorism, it rules its own people with brutal oppression and violent force. The bipartisan resolution sponsored by Chair Ed Royce that the House passed today supports Iranians who are protesting for their freedom. Alongside the Trump administration, we are sending a clear message that America stands with these courageous men and women calling for peace, stability, and democracy in Iran.”
