Congressmen bid to resettle MKO in the US

A new Bill sponsored by Dana Rohrabacher aims to resettle Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK, a.k.a. MKO) members inside the United States.

According to Habilian Association, the primary objective of the Bill, H.R.3707, is “to ensure the emergency of Iranian dissidents living in Camp Liberty/Hurriya and to provide for their admission as refugees to the United States.”

Referred to the Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security earlier this week, the Bill says that it shall be the policy of the US to “take all necessary and appropriate steps in accordance with international agreements to support the commitments of the United States to ensure the physical security and protection of Camp Liberty/Hurriya residents, members of the opposition Mujahedeen e-Khalq (MEK).”

Earlier in April 2013, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R–CA) who is also a staunch supporter of the MKO in Congress, introduced a new resolution redoubling his efforts to promote ethnic separatism in Iran. There he wanted the Broadcasting Board of Governors to beam news broadcasts in Azeri and Baloch languages into Iran and its border regions with Pakistan to promote ethnic tensions.

Rep. Rohrabacher has so far attended so many meetings of the terrorist MKO group, a group which was on the list of foreign terrorist organizations for some 15 years for its acts of violence against Iranian and US citizens.

The US supporters of the MKO seem to spare no effort in defending the violent terrorist group. Earlier in November, the former Secretary of Homeland Security Tom Ridge described the Mujahedin-e Khalq’s murder of US citizens in 1970s as “allegations.”
