Lewis statement on Syria action
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Congressman Jason Lewis (MN-02) issued the following statement on US action in Syria:
“Because the horrors in Syria--whether the recent chemical attack carried out by the Assad regime, or those committed by ISIS-aligned rebel forces--continue to shock the conscience, it's easy to understand why President Trump took the action he did.
“Nevertheless, Syria is very complicated and the situation on the ground remains stubbornly intractable. We should continue our efforts towards resolving the conflict, but any escalation of military action must get approval from Congress.”
