Human Rights/ International Relations

The protection of dignity and human rights is an issue that I have fought strongly for since I've been in Congress. In 2000, I was successful in having the Arms Trade Code of Conduct passed, a law that now requires the U.S. to create an international system for controlling the transfer and supply of weapons to nations that abuse their human rights. As the Ranking Member of the International Operations and Human Rights Subcommittee, I have overseen hearings on sexual trafficking, refugee crisis, and humanitarian responses among many hearings on nation- or region-specific issues, such as Colombia, Rwanda, and East Timor.
