Senator Menendez has called on the Government of Iraq, the United Nations, and the U.S. Government to “commit to expediting a resettlement process for the dissidents so that they can live and prosper outside of Iraq.” Monday night’s missile attack made this urgent work; and he wanted “the United States to show leadership and accept People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI or MEK) residents here in the United States!”

Senator Menendez praised the role the MEK played in “exposing the duplicity of the Tehran regime.” 

Commenting that Iran’s dangerous roles in the Middle East are well known and part of its “hegemonic” strategy, Senator Menendez pledged to continue his role in combating the regime, intending to “introduce legislation that will hold the regime accountable for its blatant support of terrorism, for its missile testing, its arms smuggling, its cyber-attacks against the United States and our friends and allies in the region, its endemic corruption, its human rights violations, and the list goes on.”
