Press Release

San Antonio, TX – Tonight, Congressman Joaquin Castro (TX-20) issued the following statement:
“Tonight, the United States launched missiles at an airfield in Syria. The Assad regime’s repeated chemical attacks on its own citizens are war crimes and indisputably horrific, but Congress plays an important role in authorizing military force. I continue to believe that Congress must authorize any additional use of force against the Syrian government.”
