Senator Tom Cotton Supports Resolution Calling on Iran to Release American Hostages

Washington, D.C.—Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement after supporting a resolution calling on Iran to release American hostages:

“Iran’s human rights abuses know no end. They are unjustly detaining several Americans, including a Christian pastor, a journalist, and a decorated Marine, purely because of their citizenship. We must stand up for these individuals and demand their freedom. President Obama should make no accommodation for Iran until these Americans are freed.”
