Members of Congress Step Up to Save Saeed

By Jordan Sekulow1383946144000

Over the course of the last year, an overwhelming number of U.S. Senators and U.S. Congressmen have taken action in support of Pastor Saeed Abedini.  These bipartisan efforts have taken the form of public statements, advocacy letters, speeches, legislation, and calls to prayer, and have played a key role in elevating Pastor Saeed’s case to the world.  Now, upon hearing news of Pastor Saeed’s transfer to an even more dangerous Iranian prison, federal officials are once again rallying to Pastor Saeed’s aid.  The ACLJ is grateful to each of the following Members for recognizing the urgency of the situation, and for quickly giving voice to it.
