제 목 From Ed Royce Congressman
Dear Friends,
On the day President Obama's flawed nuclear deal with Iran was implemented, he announced that the United States and Iran had agreed to a prisoner exchange that would see Iran release several innocent American hostages in exchange for the United States granting clemency to and releasing seven Iranians serving sentences or awaiting trial for serious crimes—such as aiding Iran’s illegal weapons programs.

In that same speech, the President announced that the United States would pay Iran $1.7 billion to settle a dispute over an aborted arms sale that had dragged on since the radicals that rule Iran seized power in 1979. The White House rejected concerns that this settlement amounted to a ransom for the release of the American hostages and refused to answer questions from Congress.

When news broke that the United States secretly paid Iran—the world’s leading state sponsor of terror—the first part of this settlement—$400 million in cash—just as the hostages were released, it became clear that the President had rejected the advice of his own Justice Department and ignored a longstanding U.S. policy not to release prisoners or pay ransom in exchange for the return of Americans held hostage abroad. Even the State Department now admits this payment was “leverage” for the release of American hostages.

What on earth was the White House thinking? Sending the world’s leading state sponsor of terror pallets of untraceable cash isn’t just terrible policy. It’s incredibly reckless, and it only puts bigger targets on the backs of Americans.

It’s no wonder that while the administration tried to hide the truth about the payment, Iran seized new American hostages. This cash bonanza has emboldened Iran’s radical regime, and undermined America’s national security. It cannot happen again.

As Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, I’ve introduced legislation to stop more dangerous cash payouts to Iran.

Specifically, the No More Cash Ransoms to Iran Act (H.R. 5931):

-Makes clear that the Obama Administration violated longstanding U.S. policy by releasing prisoners and paying ransom for the return of Americans held hostage by Iran;

-Prohibits cash payments to Iran—period

-Demands transparency on future settlements to ensure they are not used to pay ransom.

As I advance this legislation forward, I'll be sure to keep you updated on this important issue.

Sincerely,


Ed Royce
