WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02), a senior member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, released the following statement in response to President Donald Trump signing H.R. 390, the Iraq and Syria Genocide Relief and Accountability Act of 2018:

“By supporting genocide relief for innocent nationals of Iraq and Syria, President Trump has taken a great and much-needed step towards combating religious injustice in the Middle East. Because of this law, the United States is ensuring stability and basic human rights for communities that are suffering from persecution and crimes against humanity. Congressman Chris Smith (NJ-04) has been a tireless leader in opposing religious persecution. I am grateful to President Donald Trump and to my fellow Members of Congress for passing this crucial legislation.”
