Johnson Statement on Iran Protests

WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) today released the following statement on the ongoing protests in Iran:

“I am deeply troubled by the arrest of peaceful protesters and the rising death toll in Iran. The Iranian people continue to suffer tremendously under Iran’s brutal authoritarian regime.  As the Iranian regime continues to crack down on protesters, Iran’s leaders should be mindful that the United States and the rest of the world are watching.”

Sen. Johnson is a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
