Washington, D.C. – Yesterday, Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) introduced an amendment that was passed during the House Foreign Affairs Committee Markup. This amendment to H.R. 4591, the Preventing Destabilization of Iraq Act, adds two murderous militias to be considered as Foreign Terrorist Organizations due to their attempts to destabilize Iraq and Syria. 

“The United States cannot allow Iranian influence to fill the void left by a defeated ISIS in Iraq and Syria,” said Congressman Joe Wilson. “Iran is the foremost state sponsor of terrorism, and it is critical that we identify and sanction all groups attempting to spread Iran’s malign influence in the region.”
