Press Release

WESTFIELD, N.J. — Congressman Leonard Lance (NJ-07), Co-Chair of the Republican Israel Caucus, issued the following statement after the Trump Administration decision to reimpose sanctions against Iran:  


“I commend the Administration’s actions to reimpose tough economic sanctions on Iran -- sanctions that should have never been lifted in the first place.  Iran continues to be the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism and continues to target the United States and our allies.  These tough economic sanctions are necessary to hold Iran’s dictators accountable.”
