Join @RepZoeLofgren: Trump Must Come to Congress Before Hitting Syria

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives

Petition Statement

Sign the bipartisan Lofgren letter telling President Trump he must come to Congress for authorization before a military escalation in Syria.
There are currently 7,334 signatures. NEW goal - We need 7,500 signatures!

Petition Background

On April 6, President Trump attacked Syria without Congressional authorization, violating the Constitution and the War Powers Resolution. On April 8, he said he would take additional action as he deemed necessary. He has not yet agreed to seek Congressional authorization before further military action.

Representative Zoe Lofgren [CA-19] is circulating a bipartisan letter to President Trump, demanding that he seek Congressional authorization before further military action in Syria. The Lofgren letter echoes a bipartisan 2013 letter led by then-Republican Representative Scott Rigell to then-President Obama, pressing him to come to Congress before U.S. military action in Syria. [1]

Urge your Representative to support the Lofgren letter by signing our petition.
