Press Release

WASHINGTON – Congressman Lou Barletta (PA-11) today released the following statement in response to U.S. missile strikes at the Shayrat Airfield in Syria yesterday:

“President Trump took decisive action to send a message to the world that our nation will not stand by while a dictator brutally murders civilians, including women and children.  The targeted missile strikes on the airfield from where the Syrian government launched the gas attack were a necessary and proportionate response.  I fully support the president's move.”
