KENNEDY STATEMENT ON SYRIA STRIKES

Apr 6, 2017
Press Release

Newton, MA –  Congressman Joe Kennedy III released the following statement tonight after President Trump launched U.S. airstrikes in Syria.

"President Assad's vicious brutality demands a response. But this country doesn't fight wars without giving the American people a say. Any plans for military engagement in Syria must come before their elected representatives in Congress for a debate and a vote. And any strategy that ignores the refugees fleeing this unimaginable terror is a half-step at best."
