Washington, DC – U.S. Representative Mike Bost (IL-12) issued the following statement after US airstrikes were conducted in Syria:

“The use of chemical weapons is a war crime. Plain and simple. I support President Trump’s decision to send a clear message to the Assad regime that inhumane acts like these are beyond the pale and will not be tolerated. We must remain vigilant and continue working closely with our allies to defend our national security interests in the volatile environment in Syria. I share the President’s sentiment that we pray for the victims and ask for God’s wisdom in navigating this dangerous situation.”
