The Belfast man spoke out after giving evidence as the main witness to the hearing into the murder of 22-year-old Raymond McCord Jr near Belfast in 1997.
He was killed by the UVF and his father has since led a lengthy campaign to expose police collusion in the case, between British Government agents and police informers.
Speaking from Capitol Hill, Mr McCord expressed deep satisfaction with the hearing.
"Congressman Delahunt, the Chairman of the Hearing, and the other Members of Congress could not have been more supportive," he said.
"It has given me great consolation and encouragement. The congress of the United States has assured me they are not going to quit until I get justice for Raymond, and, needless to say, neither am I."
Mr McCord also expressed his thanks to Fr. Sean Mc Manus, president of the Capitol Hill-based Irish National Caucus.
"I am deeply grateful to Fr. Mc Manus for helping to make it possible," he said.
