SAN ANTONIO— Today, Congressman Henry Cuellar (TX-28), a member of the House Appropriations Committee and Subcommittee on Homeland Security and Defense, released the following statement after President Trump launched airstrikes against the Syrian regime, following a brutal chemical weapons attack on civilians in Douma:

“The recent chemical attacks by the Assad regime make it clear that now, more than ever, we need to continue working in concert with our allies against inhumane gas attacks on innocent, civilian populations.

“As the leading global superpower, it is important from both a strategic and moral standpoint that the United States leads on this important issue, and that we continue mobilizing in order to prevent these brutal chemical weapon attacks like the ones in Douma from happening in the future.

“Although it is disappointing that we do not have unanimity on the United Nations Security Council on this issue, we cannot let it deter our commitment to this matter, or allow it diminish our moral, Democratic obligation.”
