S. 1933 would require the Departments of State and Treasury to impose sanctions on persons responsible for human rights violations or significant corruption in foreign countries. Those persons would be ineligible for entry into the United States, have any existing visas revoked, and have their assets frozen. The legislation also would require periodic reports to the Congress on the implementation of the bill.
