These decisions will tear families apart and devastate American communities while continuing to undermine America’s standing in the world. Conditions in Syria today are not safe for the return of civilians—as demonstrated by this administration’s own announcement just two weeks ago to offer an open-ended commitment of U.S. troops with no clear end in sight in order to deal with horrific security conditions there.'
