                       SUPPORT THE PEOPLE OF IRAN

  (Mr. LAMBORN asked and was given permission to address the House for 
1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
  Mr. LAMBORN. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to highlight the people of 
Iran, who are sick and tired of living under the mullahs' rule and have 
courageously taken to the streets across their country to demand 
freedom and sound governance.
  The Ayatollah's regime duped the Obama administration into a nuclear 
deal in which they received a tremendous payout. The people of Iran 
expected to benefit financially from the deal, but the regime 
squandered everything on foreign wars at the expense of their citizens.
  The Islamic regime funds the ongoing deadly tactics of Hamas and the 
Palestinians, supports Bashar al-Assad of Syria, finances the ongoing 
war in Yemen, builds rocket factories in Lebanon and Syria, and I could 
go on and on.
  Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are ideals that America 
champions, the same ideals that the Iranian protestors are risking 
their lives to achieve.
  To this end, I support the Iranian people, as do the Trump 
administration and the free world.
