Senator Harris Statement on U.S. Military Action in Syria


Location: Washington, DC

Today, U.S. Senator Kamala D. Harris released the following statement in response to U.S. military action in Syria:

"Syrian President Bashar al-Assad viciously attacked innocent civilians, including scores of children, who suffocated to death from chemical weapons. This attack reinforces the clear fact that President Assad is not only a ruthless dictator brutalizing his own people--he is a war criminal the international community cannot ignore.

"President Trump must consult with Congress to address the Administration's lack of clear objectives in Syria and articulate a detailed strategy and path forward in partnership with our allies. The American people deserve no less.

"The President said that images of slaughtered Syrian children contributed to his decision to take military action. That should also compel the Administration to rethink its misguided refugee policy and open our doors to the children and families fleeing ongoing violence and oppression in Syria and elsewhere."
