Fighting for Florida
Yesterday, Senator Rubio and Senator Joe Lieberman (I-CT) introduced a bipartisan resolution condemning the human rights abuses taking place in Syria. The resolution urges the President to implement further sanctions on Syrian officials, including the illegitimate leader, President Bashar Al Assad, and express America’s support of the Syrian people, who are peacefully protesting their barbaric and violent government.
Speaking out against these unspeakable acts, Senator Rubio appeared on CBS’ “The Early Show” and CNN’s “Situation Room” to explain the resolution and bring awareness to the atrocities taking place in Syria. He also appeared alongside Senators Lieberman and John McCain (R-AZ) at a press conference in Washington, D.C. Watch Senator Rubio’s remarks below:
