NUFDI: Why the State of the Union Silence on Iran?

Washington, DC — In a more than 73 minute address to the American people, President Biden refused to mention the Iranian people’s revolution and nationwide pro-democracy movement even once. His refusal to recognize the hundreds of innocent Iranians murdered and the more than 18,000 protesters jailed by the Islamic Republic is insulting to their sacrifices and a contradiction of President Biden’s campaign promise to put human rights and democracy at the center of his foreign policy. The Iranian-American community will no longer accept a foreign policy that empowers, emboldens, and enriches this criminal regime.
