Press Release

Rep. Chip Roy released the following statement Sunday evening regarding the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi:

I’m glad al-Baghdadi is dead. And we believe we followed it up with killing the voice of ISIS, Abu Hassan al-Muhajir, spokesman of the Islamic State. America should continue sending the message to our enemies that no matter where you hide, we will rout you out, we will find you, and we will ensure that justice is served.

I am grateful for the continued, tireless efforts of our men and women in uniform who defend our freedoms at home and abroad. They sacrifice their lives to protect Americans, and to protect innocents around the world. No terrorist can sleep easy knowing that the strongest military in the history of the world is ready to stop them in their tracks.

I am also thankful to the Trump administration and our national security leadership for their continued efforts to obliterate ISIS and other terrorist groups who wish to harm the United States and our allies.
