Congressman Bill Johnson issued the following statement on the U.S. air strike in Syria:

“The images this week out of Syria were horrifying - dozens of men, women, and children were murdered. The use of chemical weapons is illegal under international law, and the use of them cannot be tolerated - anywhere! The Trump Administration is justified in these tactical strikes against the Assad regime - a designated state sponsor of terrorism - who has repeatedly demonstrated its willingness to commit barbaric acts against its own people.”
