Four Rubio-led Measures Passed Out of Senate Foreign Relations Committee
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) applauded four pieces of legislation that he led or co-led that were passed out of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee today.
“I applaud committee passage of these important bipartisan bills and resolutions, and urge my colleagues to support them on the Senate floor,” said Rubio. “From advancing human rights to protecting religious freedom, and promoting press freedom to facilitating the return of stolen Holocaust-era property to their rightful owners, the United States should continue to lead on these issues.”
Background of the four Rubio-led bills:
North Korea Human Rights Reauthorization Act
Updates and reauthorizes the 2004 law promoting human rights and freedom in North Korea.
The Justice for Uncompensated Survivors Today (JUST) Act
Improves efforts assisting survivors and the families of victims of the Holocaust who are seeking the return of or restitution for assets stolen during the Holocaust. The bill requires the State Department to report on certain European countries’ compliance with the goals of the 2009 Terezin Declaration on Holocaust Era Assets, and what actions those countries are taking to resolve the claims of U.S. citizens.
World Press Freedom Day Resolution
Highlights the importance of press freedom and condemning attacks against journalists around the world. The bipartisan resolution recognizes the dangers that reporters face and reaffirms freedom of the press as a priority for the U.S. government.
Resolution Condemning Iranian Persecution of Baha’I Community
Condemns Iran’s persecution of 300,000 members of the Baha’i Faith. In addition to condemning religious persecution, the bipartisan resolution calls on Iran to release prisoners being held for their religious beliefs, including the now five leaders of the Baha’i Faith who have been held since 2008.
