Thank you for writing to express your strong support for the Leahy laws and concern over calls to weaken the Leahy vetting process. I strongly support the Leahy laws for precisely the reasons you cited: They are an important mechanism for achieving our political, security, and human rights goals. The Department of State employs a rigorous human rights vetting process pursuant to the Leahy laws so assistance does not benefit individuals or units when there is credible information of gross human rights violations.
