Congressman Gonzalez Statement on the Protect Against Conflict by Turkey Act

October 29, 2019
Press Release

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Vicente Gonzalez (TX-15) issued a statement following the vote on H.R. 469, the Protect Against Conflict by Turkey (PACT) Act in response to the recent aggression by Turkey in northern Syria against the Kurdish people: 

 “Turkey’s invasion of northern Syria requires swift and severe consequences,” said Congressman Gonzalez. “We cannot allow the Turkish incursion to go unpunished and stand idly by as they slaughter and ethnically cleanse our Kurdish allies. We must see a clear, cohesive strategy by the Trump Administration to stabilize the region, ensure the enduring defeat of ISIS, and restore the United States’ reputation as an honorable and trustworthy partner.  If this is not remedied, this betrayal will wreak havoc on our foreign policy in the Middle East and impair critical relationships.”
