The United States is enabling war crimes in Yemen, and even Trump’s most vocal enablers are turning against him on this one. The Republican-controlled Senate voted to end U.S. support for Saudi war crimes in Yemen, since Trump won’t do it himself.
The Democratic-controlled House voted to end U.S. support for this cruel war in February 2019, but, in order to send it to Trump’s desk, they must now pass it one more time. Their task is to reject any Republican procedural maneuvers, like motions to recommit, to derail this historic bill’s passage. Learn more here.
Rep. Delgado: I am a constituent calling from [CITY]. I urge you to vote in favor of the bipartisan resolution to end U.S. involvement in the Saudi-led Yemen war, and to REJECT any motion to recommit when this bill moves to the floor.
Congress never authorized this conflict, and the Constitution demands that we the people, through our elected representatives, decide when and where we go to war — not the president. It is essential that the House pass this clean resolution just as the Senate did, without additional language through a motion to recommit.
Yemen is the world’s largest humanitarian crisis, and we’re helping it happen. I will be closely watching for your vote in favor of the Yemen resolution, and against the motion to recommit.
