Sanctions are having a significant impact on the Iranian economy. Nevertheless, the Iranian regime continues to pursue its illicit nuclear weapons program in defiance of the international community. Accordingly, now is the time to impose the most robust and comprehensive sanctions in history – a full economic blockade against the Iranian regime.
Over the last year, international sanctions have had a crippling effect on the economic activity of the Iranian regime. Iran’s currency, the rial, has crashed as a result. An economic blockade against the Iranian regime is the best method to increase its economic isolation and compel the regime to abandon its pursuit of nuclear weapons while avoiding military action.
UANI has developed model legislation for adoption by the U.S. Congress that would impose such an embargo modeled on the following UANI proposal:
Any business, firm or entity that does work in Iran shall be barred from receiving U.S. government contracts, accessing U.S. capital markets, entering into commercial partnerships with U.S. entities, or otherwise doing business in the U.S. or with U.S. entities.
The rationale behind this concept is simple. Companies forced to choose between doing business in the U.S. or Iran will choose the U.S., and in turn isolate the regime.

As part of its ongoing strategy of enacting an economic blockade against the Iranian regime, UANI has developed and pursued numerous sanctions proposals. Click on each icon below to learn more about each legislative or regulatory initiative.
