To the Editor:

U.S. Representative Kim Schrier along with Trump supports sanctions on Iran. Obama and Trump imposed sanctions on Venezuela. All of these sanctions punish the innocent by denying them food, medicine and other basic needs. They are cruel and deadly. The use of economic sanctions for political purposes violates human rights and international law.
