I rise today to express my outrage at the chemical attack in Syria on April 4, 2017 that killed upwards of 70 civilians and children.
I am proud to represent many Syrian-Americans in my Congressional District in Charleston, West Virginia.
Syrian Dictator Bashar al-Assad is inflicting a reign of terror on his own people; we must take a critical first step and establish a no-fly zone. I call upon this administration to act now before it is too late.
President Obama’s trip to Charleston to discuss the ongoing drug epidemic in West Virginia goes beyond party lines. Obama’s visit to West Virginia demonstrates the severity of the situation. We are leading the country in drug overdoses with 34 deaths per 100,000, and we have to find a long term solution to solve this problem.
