The Lautenberg Amendment, which facilitates the exit from Iran of members of the Jewish, Christian and Baha'i minorities, was included in the continuing resolution approved by Congress this week. HIAS states in this JTA article that “as we prepare to celebrate Passover, we are thankful for Congress’ continuing commitment to protecting Jews, Christians, Baha’is, and other persecuted religious minorities in Iran."
