10/29/19 - Rep. Quigley posted the following to Facebook: "The House just passed the #PACTAct which imposes sanctions against Turkey that won’t be lifted until President Erdogan withdraws from northern Syria. Along with imposing sanctions, the #PACTAct requires the Administration to provide Congress with their strategy to combat ISIS and protect Syrian Kurdish communities. Since President Trump won’t stand up to President Erdogan, Congress will." View the Facebook post here.
