Rothus Defends Human Rights and Condemns Iran’s Oppressive and Corrupt Regime
WASHINGTON - Congressman Keith Rothfus(PA-12) released the following statement after supporting H.Res.676 which condemns the Iranian regime’s serious human rights abuses against the Iranian people, its significant corruption, and its destabilizing activities throughout the world:
“America must stand up for the Iranian people who are protesting against an oppressive regime that has imposed tyranny on them for over three decades,” said Congressman Keith Rothfus. “For far too long, the authoritarian terrorists of Tehran have pursued an aggressive military build-up of arms and a massive police-state to oppress their people instead of a course leading to peace and prosperity. Their international campaign of terror is conducted at the expense of ordinary Iranians, whose taxes go everywhere, but to themselves. This tyranny does not belong anywhere, and I am proud to support this Congressional declaration."
