US Senators Reintroduce Anti-Iran Bill

US Republican Senators Marco Rubio, John Cornyn and Todd Young Tuesday reintroduced the Iran Non-Nuclear Sanctions Act to seek strong financial and economic sanctions against the country’s non-nuclear activities, such as alleged human rights abuses, support for international terrorism and ballistic missile violations.“After years of unilateral concessions and flexibility by the previous administration, it’s time for the United States to push back against Iran’s support for terrorism, the regime’s menacing ballistic missile activities and its egregious human rights violations,” Rubio claimed in a press release, Newsmax reported.  “I look forward to working with the new administration to hold Iran fully accountable for both its non-nuclear and nuclear threats.” Young said Iran remains a threat because of its alleged support of terrorism and “aggressive development of ballistic missiles to threaten US allies, deployed troops and eventually the US homeland.” This legislation would impose real consequences on Iran and make clear that the days when Tehran’s … activities elicited little more from Washington than a strong statement and a slap on the wrist are gone.” Rubio and Cornyn first introduced the same bill in December.
