Flores: Iran Is Not a Nation We Can Trust

U.S. Representative Bill Flores (R-Texas) released the following statement regarding the passage of H.R. 3662, the Iran Terror Finance Transparency Act:

"Today, Congress voted to strengthen sanctions on Iran in the wake of the Obama Administration's naïve and reckless nuclear deal. Since the deal's "adoption' by the White House, Iran has demonstrated time and again its willingness to violate international agreements. It has flouted the international community, firing medium range ballistic missiles and growing its stockpile of low-enriched uranium, while continuing its human rights abuses. Without consequence, the rogue regime has recently humiliated our men and women in uniform after propagandizing the capture of ten U.S. Navy personnel. Iran is not a nation we can trust. This bill will prevent more funds from going to the world's largest state sponsor of terrorism. The American people would be better served if President Obama would also take a stand against Iran's unacceptable behavior, instead of making excuses for it."
