Burgess Statement on the Chemical Weapons Attack in Syria
Washington, D.C. — Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (R-TX) issued the following statement on the recent chemical weapons attack in Syria. “The chemical weapons attack that occurred Tuesday in northwestern Syria is a shocking atrocity. The attack was reportedly carried out using the potent nerve gas, sarin, killing at least 70 civilians, including children. "This barbaric behavior must end. The Syrian government has denied involvement, just as they did in a 2013 sarin gas attack that killed 1,300 people. Bashar al-Assad’s continued presence in Syria cannot be accepted as a political reality. A leader who allows the killing of innocent civilians is no leader at all. The removal of President al-Assad must be considered as part of any solution to this years-long civil war.”  ###

Burgess Statement on U.S. Airstrikes in Syria
Washington, D.C. — Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (R-TX) issued the following statement on the U.S. airstrikes in Syria. “President Trump made the correct decision to take decisive action against the Assad regime. The event that occurred in Syria earlier this week is astonishing in its cruelty. The next step in this process is as important as the first. And before further military action is taken, it is Congress’ obligation to authorize war powers through the structure and debate of an Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF). This should occur sooner rather than later, even if it interferes with the scheduled Congressional recess. We owe it to our men and women in the military to provide clear and concise direction from the United States Congress.” ###
