Yarmuth Statement on U.S. Airstrikes in Syria

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-03) released the statement below in regard to U.S. airstrikes in Syria:                                                                                                         

“I support President Trump’s response to the criminal and inhumane actions of the Assad regime in Syria. I hope that Speaker Ryan and Majority Leader McConnell will move quickly to seek congressional approval of yesterday’s action, so that the constitutional prerogatives of Congress’s war-making authority are asserted. No escalation of military activity in Syria or the region can proceed without explicit congressional approval.”
