Last week, the House of Representatives passed HR 1897, the Vietnam Human Rights Act of 2013. This law will stop any non-humanitarian assistance to Vietnam unless President Obama confirms that the government of Vietnam has met tangible basic human rights benchmarks including religious liberty, freedom of association and assembly, and freedom of opinion.
