WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Oregon Congressman Earl Blumenauer says Syria's use of chemical weapons is reprehensible and the U.S. missile attack is not out of line. "Near as I can tell, it was not a disproportionate response." He adds, "Sending a message to this butcher that there
can be consequences is, I think, understandable; it has to be done carefully."
Blumenauer, however, fells President Trump should have consulted Congress. He's concerned about the President's reversal on previous statements of having a hands-off approach. Blumenauer says that if Trump is serious about his concern for the Syrian people, he should start by allowing Syrian refugees into this country.
