“Friends” warned the former professional athlete that the bounty could encourage cartels, the mafia, and even serial killers to start coming after him.

“Some members of Congress actually reacted to this news and called on the Biden administration to speak up and actually take some action. Because I remember the first time that President Biden — before he came in office, in fact, – the first thing he said. that the problem in the Middle East is what we are doing, and we have to do something about it. And it’s been almost two years and he still hasn’t done anything. So we have to give priority to human rights,” Saoirse explained.
