Congressman Tony Gonzales Introduces Bill to Withhold Sanction Relief from Terrorist Organizations in Iran

I introduced the Constraining Human Rights Offenders in the Middle East (CHROME) Act on Tuesday. The legislation would prohibit the re-entry of the United States into the Iran Deal unless President Biden certifies to Congress that any sanction relief would not benefit terrorist organizations in Iran that have engaged in the violation of human rights – including torture, the killing of peaceful protestors or the persecution of members of the LGBT community.
As the Biden Administration makes misguided steps to re-enter the Iran Deal, we have to ensure that funds are staying out of the dangerous hands of terrorist organizations. The United States cannot turn a blind eye and allow sanction relief to benefit terrorist organizations like Hezbollah or the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps – groups that are responsible for the deaths of hundreds of U.S. soldiers and thousands of other innocent lives.
