 WASHINGTON— In response to the President’s decision to withdraw from the Iran Deal, U.S. Rep. Dennis A. Ross (R-FL-15), Senior Deputy Majority Whip, issued the following statement.

"The Iran Deal, agreed to by the previous administration without the consent of Congress, empowered Iran to continue its pursuit of terror and human rights abuse throughout the region. Rife with secret side agreements that jeopardize the safety of Americans both abroad and within our homeland, I welcome President Trump’s decisive action to withdraw from this deeply flawed deal, and to reimpose sanctions on the Iranian regime.”

“Iran is the largest state sponsor of terrorism in the world. We must hold them accountable, both now and moving forward.”

Rep. Ross is a member of the Financial Services Committee, which has oversight over the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control. The OFAC announced that it would reimpose sanctions subject to certain wind-down periods. For more on OFAC’s next steps click here.
