US representatives express their support of a democratic Iran

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, Texas Democrat

I want to express my commitment and my support of a secular, democratic, non-nuclear Republic of Iran as addressed; and Mrs. Maryam Rajavi’s 10-point plan. I believe that democratic change within Iran is within our reach. I believe under the leadership of Madam Maryam Rajavi, our friend, the leader of this great cause, who’s been working to bring about a tolerant, non-nuclear Iranian republic based on the separation of religion and state and respect for human and dignity of all Iranians… I believe that freedom is coming.

• Rep. Jackson Lee is the Ranking Member of the House Judiciary subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security, and Investigations.

Rep. Eliot Engel, New York Democrat

I stand with those in Iran who seek a more prosperous and peaceful future. The United States stands with you. I look forward to a day when the people of Iran have the greatest say in their own government, their laws and their future. And I look forward to one day walking in a free Iran.

• Rep. Engel is the Ranking Member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

Rep. Danny K. Davis, Illinois Democrat

I bring greetings to you to Maryam Rajavi and the people’s movement for a free and democratic Iran… Fortunately, I was able to be with you in 2016, and I can tell you that the people of the 7th District of Illinois were also with you then and they are with you now. I leave you with the words of Frederick Douglass when he said if there is no struggle, there is no progress.

• Rep. Davis is the Ranking Member of the House Ways and Means subcommittee on Human Resources.

Rep. Steve Cohen, Tennessee Democrat

I strongly support a free Iran that is democratic, secular and non-nuclear. The Iranian people deserve a government that respects their fundamental rights and freedom, including freedom of speech and assembly, gender and religious equality Your courage is an inspiration to me and all members of Congress, and I will stand with you and hopefully visit a free Iran.

• Rep. Cohen is the Ranking Member on the House Judiciary subcommittee on The Constitution and Civil Justice.
