Dear Mr. President: Bipartisan, bicameral letter urging the completion of the Syria withdrawal process

Republicans and Democrats, Senators and Representatives. A diverse group of lawmakers sent President Trump a letter in support of his decision to bring U.S. troops home from Syria and urging the completion of the withdrawal process “within the next six months”.

US Senators Rand Paul (R-KY) and Mike Lee (R-UT)  and U.S. Representatives Ro Khanna (D-CA), Ted Lieu (D-CA), Justin Amash (R-MI), Andy Biggs (R-AZ), Jeff Duncan (R-SC), Paul Gosar (R-AZ), Thomas Massie (R-KY), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (DFL-MN), and Bill Posey (R-FL) got together for the letter.

“One of the things I have always admired about President Trump is his willingness to take on a foreign policy establishment that has failed to make America safer. As he said during the State of the Union, ‘Great nations do not fight endless wars,’ and I look forward to continuing to work with President Trump to change course and bring more of our soldiers home,” said Sen. Paul.

“The president cannot pursue a foreign policy agenda without the advice and consent, let alone the support, of the Congress. Thanks to Sen. Paul for joining me in bringing an end to these wars – The Constitution isn’t partisan,” said Rep. Khanna.

“The 2015 introduction of U.S. military forces into hostilities in Syria was never approved by Congress, in violation of the Constitution and the War Powers Resolution of 1973. We believe that the stated intention of withdrawing our forces is appropriate, and we look forward to the orderly return of our service members from this theater of conflict,” the signers wrote in their letter to President Trump.

“While it is essential to accomplish the announced withdrawal, we urge your Administration to couple the process of a phased removal of U.S. troops with an increased focus on diplomacy to ensure minimal disruption and prevent needless loss of life,” they continued.
