Press Release

FLEMINGTON, NJ --- Congressman Leonard Lance (NJ-07) released the following statement on Syria:

“The Assad regime is responsible for the death of thousands of innocent civilians and the use of chemical weapons poses a threat to U.S. national security interests.  I commend President Trump’s decision for a measured response.  This crisis is complex and the Administration must engage Congress in a resolution in accordance with war powers and Constitutional responsibilities.  Further actions should be debated in Congress.”
