Sen. Rand Paul today joined as an original co-sponsor of the following Senate Resolution calling for the government of Iran to immediately release Pastor Saeed Abedini and all other individuals detained on account of their religious beliefs.
"Saeed Abedini is an American pastor that has been imprisoned indefinitely due to his Christian faith. Across the globe, Christians are under attack and this Administration is doing nothing to stop it. This reasonable resolution calls on the government of Iran to release Abedini and all other individuals detained on account of their religious beliefs. I will continue to do all that I can to protect American citizens from religious persecution abroad."
