Chairman Xavier Becerra on President Obama’s Remarks on Syria

August 31, 2013

Today, Congressman Xavier Becerra (CA-34), Chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, released the following statement after President Obama’s remarks on Syria this afternoon:

“In announcing today that he would seek Congressional approval for a targeted, strategic military strike on the Syrian government, President Obama is doing what’s right for America and for the people who believe in what our nation stands for. Americans deserve and expect open and transparent governance, particularly when decisions of life and death are at stake. Congress will now have a chance to debate the President’s call to action, and the evidence and rationale behind it. Let us now be up to the task as we prepare for that vote.”
