Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL22) Introduces H. Res. 823

Congressman Ted Deutch (D-FL22) introduced a bill to condemn the Iranian government’s persecution of its minority Baha’i community.

The bill cites several instances of persecution, including the fact that since 2005 over 1,168 Baha’is have been arrested and imprisoned, and since 2013 there have been over 803 reported incidents violating the economic rights of Baha’is in Iran.
