Rep. LaMalfa: We Must Work Together to Stop ISIS
Washington, D.C. – Rep. Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale) today released the following statement on the President’s address to the nation and the steps the Obama Administration is taking to counter the threat posed by ISIS:
“Last night, the President correctly pointed out that ISIS cannot be allowed to expand its foothold in the region. ISIS is a threat to American personnel and interests in the Middle East, and could eventually launch attacks in the United States if we do not take decisive action.
“Our nation is strongest when we work together, and the only way we can defeat these barbaric killers is if the President follows through on his commitment to destroy ISIS. That’s why I’ve cosponsored H.J.Res. 123, which requires the President to work with Congress to develop a detailed strategy to end the ISIS threat. As this effort moves forward, it is critical for the Obama Administration to collaborate with Congress, and our allies, to ensure ISIS is soundly defeated.”
Doug LaMalfa is a lifelong farmer representing California’s First Congressional District, including Butte, Glenn, Lassen, Modoc, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, Shasta, Sierra, Siskiyou and Tehama Counties.
