Congresswoman Claudia Tenney has issued the following statement regarding President Trump's decision to launch airstrikes in Syria:

“Earlier this week, the Assad regime launched a brutal chemical weapons attack in Syria that killed innocent men, woman and children.

The policies of the past administration have failed and it is now time for a new strategy.

Last night, President Trump's action showed the world that the United States will not sit idly by while the Assad regime continues to murder their own people.

Going forward, it is vitally important that the administration involve Congress in any future decisions regarding the region.”
