Rep. Sanchez condemns Assad regime

Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez (D-CA47) released the following statement regarding the situation in Syria:

“I strongly condemn the campaign of terror and violence waged by the Assad regime in Syria against innocent and unarmed Syrian civilians,” said Rep. Sanchez.  “These atrocities, committed by regime leaders in response to peaceful demonstrations, represent the worst type of human rights abuses. America is on the side of the Syrian people, who have shown tremendous courage in their transition to democracy, and we support their aspirations for a peaceful and democratic future. I call on President Obama to impose additional sanctions and encourage the international community to publicly acknowledge that Bashar al Assad has exhausted his legitimacy.”
