Last night, President Obama addressed the nation regarding concerns of terrorist threat from Islamic militant group, ISIL. Congressman Joe Garcia issued the following statement in response --
"The growing influence of ISIL stands to completely destabilize the region and poses a very real threat to American interests at home and abroad. The brutal, publicized murders of two Americans, one a fellow South Floridian, showed the world the extent of their inhumanity. ISIL must be dealt with decisive action and a coordinated, comprehensive response by the United States, the Iraqi government, regional partners, and the international community."
