U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, released the following statement today after the Obama Administration expelled the senior official at Syria's embassy in the United States:

"The U.S. should have taken the lead in expelling Syrian regime officials. Although the moment to lead has passed, I am pleased that the Obama Administration finally did the right thing by following in our allies' example and expelling the top official at the Syrian embassy.

"The Administration still has an opportunity to go further by expelling additional Syrian regime personnel from our shores and expand our overall sanctions against Damascus, and I urge that these actions be taken immediately."
