HOUSTON, Texas - U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) issued the following statement regarding the U.S.-launched missile strikes in Syria:

"Tonight, the United States responded to the atrocities of Bashar al-Assad.

"As the President said, it is in our national interest to deter the use of chemical weapons. Critically, that includes preventing those chemical weapons from falling into the hands of the radical Islamic terrorist elements in Syria. It is now absolutely crucial that any further military action we take in Syria remains focused on protecting the vital national security interests of our country.

"In addition to any military action that we may choose to take, we must also take action against Assad's financiers. We should withdraw from President Obama's disastrous Iran deal that is enriching the Iran government with billions of dollars, and those ill-gotten gains are in turn being funneled to Syria to prop up the Bashar regime.

"In the days ahead, I look forward to the President making the case to Congress and the American people that his proposed course of action in Syria is in the national security interests of this country. But tonight, our support and prayers are with the brave Americans in uniform, as well as our trusted allies in France and the U.K., who carried out these military strikes."
