Congresswoman Matsui Statement on U.S. Airstrikes in Syria

Washington, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Doris Matsui (D-CA) issued the following statement on the U.S. airstrikes in Syria:

“Bashar al-Assad has continuously violated human rights and moral decency. His latest use of chemical weapons in Syria against innocent people was a horrific, inhumane act of violence. While the Assad regime must be held accountable for these appalling actions, it is imperative that the Administration come to Congress to authorize any further escalation of U.S. involvement in Syria.”
