Apr 7, 2017 Issues: National Security

WASHINGTON, D.C.Congressman Donald M. Payne, Jr. (NJ-10) issued the following statement on U.S. airstrikes in Syria:

President Trump’s unprecedented missile strikes in Syria will not put an end to the atrocities committed by the Assad regime. While the chemical attack on Syrian civilians necessitated a response, these strikes on their own are insufficient. Moving forward, the Trump administration must work closely with Congress to develop a comprehensive strategy to end Syria’s crisis in a way that keeps American troops safe and avoids another war in the Middle East.”
