A lot of lawmakers are finding their constituents back home are against a U.S. intervention in Syria for its reported use of chemical weapons against its own people.
Congressman Bill Flores of Bryan held a town hall meeting Thursday night at Rudder High School.
He got a head count on how those attending the meeting feel about a possible U.S. strike on Syria.
He asked those attending the meeting, "How many of you don't wan't to get involved in syria? OK- me neither."
The majority raised their hands.
Congressman Flores told News 3 earlier in the day that the Syrian conflict doesn't appear to be a clear and present danger to the United States and that a strike wouldn't be in the best strategic interest for the U.S.
