I was proud to vote on behalf of Hoosiers to confirm him last Friday: <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/Customers/SenYoung/17.04.07_-_Go rsuch_Quote_Final.png> On Syria The international community has looked the other way for too long and has failed to act as Assad and Putin have deliberately and barbarically murdered innocent men, women, and children in Syria. I applaud the Trump administration's decision to take action. Our men and women in uniform conducted these strikes with professionalism and precision, and I join all Americans in expressing our gratitude to our service members. After attending a briefing with General Dunford, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, I am confident that the President will continue to receive sound advice from his impressive national security team. Following these strikes, the administration should submit to Congress without delay a comprehensive, whole-of-government strategy�working with our international partners. Our national security interests require that this strategy seeks to eliminate ISIS's remaining safe haven in Syria, end the Syrian regime's war on its own people, address the humanitarian crisis, and begin a political process that includes the departure of Assad and the establishment of an inclusive Syrian government. Simultaneously, Congress finally should fulfill its Constitutional responsibility to consider and pass an appropriately crafted authorization for use of military force.

Congratulations Justice Gorsuch

Justice Neil Gorsuch was formally sworn-in today. I was proud to vote on  behalf of Hoosiers to confirm him last Friday:

On Syria

The international community has looked the other way for too long and has failed to act as Assad and Putin have deliberately and barbarically murdered innocent men, women, and children in Syria. I applaud the Trump administration’s decision to take action.  Our men and women in uniform conducted these strikes with professionalism and precision, and I join all Americans in expressing our gratitude to our service members.

 After attending a briefing with General Dunford, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, I am confident that the President will continue to receive sound advice from his impressive national security team.  Following these strikes, the administration should submit to Congress without delay a comprehensive, whole-of-government strategy—working with our international partners.  Our national security interests require that this strategy seeks to eliminate ISIS’s remaining safe haven in Syria, end the Syrian regime’s war on its own people, address the humanitarian crisis, and begin a political process that includes the departure of Assad and the establishment of an inclusive Syrian government.  Simultaneously, Congress finally should fulfill its Constitutional responsibility to consider and pass an appropriately crafted authorization for use of military force.
