Yoder Statement on U.S. Missile Strikes in Syria

Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Representative Kevin Yoder (R-KS) issued the following statement in response to the Trump Administration’s authorization of missile strikes against a Syrian airbase following the Assad Regime's use of chemical weapons to kill dozens of Syrian civilians earlier this week:

"The President's decisive, surgical response was the right action to take in Syria. The use of chemical weapons are a threat to us all and as we have seen over the past several years, allowing Assad to murder his people and destabilize the region has led to a refugee crisis that endangers our national security by opening up the United States and our allies to attacks by ISIS. As we move forward, it is incumbent upon the President to clearly communicate our policy in Syria to the American people and work with Congress in authorizing force for any broader action."
