(READ) Senate measure to freeze $6 billion payment to Iran passes Senate

“With Iran’s backing to the tune of $100 million annually, Hamas was able to commit the largest mass killing of Jewish people in a single day since the Holocaust, and they have no intention of stopping. Giving Iran $6 billion – even if for humanitarian aid – allows them to reallocate other funds to supporting terrorism. After I led 19 of my colleagues in the initial call on President Biden to freeze this payment, I am pleased to see Congress just sent him a message to permanently freeze the funds.”
