The U.S. and Congress shouldn’t stand by idly while human rights are trampled and ignored around the world. This bill would empower the executive branch with additional authority to take action against human rights violators around the world.
This bill is too broad, and could trample on freedom of religious expression and human rights in other nations. It’s also duplicative with the Global Magnitsky Act, so it wouldn’t provide any new protections for LGBTI individuals that aren’t already provided in existing law.
