Sinema Statement on U.S. Airstrikes in Syria

Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema released the following statement on the military strikes in Syria:

“The immoral chemical weapons attack on innocent men, women, and children requires a strong, swift response.  The airstrikes send a clear message that the United States will hold the Assad regime accountable for these horrific actions.

“The administration must now work with Congress to develop a clear, unified, and effective strategy to end the conflict in Syria, remove Assad from power, address the humanitarian crisis, and defeat ISIS. I've introduced bipartisan legislation requiring a plan to achieve these goals, but we have yet to see a plan from the administration. 

“Thank you to our brave servicemen and women who executed this mission and continue working to keep our country safe and secure.”
