Congresswoman Judy Chu (CA-27) released the following statement about the potential for military action in response to the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian government:
"The Syrian regime's use of chemical weapons is an atrocity deserving of universal condemnation. A tyrant who commits these unspeakable acts against his own people must be confronted by the international community. We need a robust debate in Congress -- one that weighs the consequences of potential actions and keeps America's best interests at heart. My top priority in the days to come is to deliberate on the facts as we know them, and deliver a vote for the best course of action for the American people and the world."
