Withdraw Unauthorized US Military Involvement in Yemen

October 9, 2017

Please Cosponsor H.Con. Res. 81, the Khanna-Massie Legislation on Yemen.

  • Congress has never authorized U.S. military involvement in the Saudi-led war in Yemen, despite the U.S. being heavily involved in the conflict for more than 3 years.

  • By refueling Saudi and UAE bombers and providing the Saudi-led coalition with weapons, intelligence, and logistical support, the U.S. is complicit in violations of international law and in creating the world’s largest humanitarian crisis.

  • This devastating war has pushed Yemen to the brink of mass starvation and into the worst cholera outbreak in recorded history.

  • The House is expected to vote on this landmark legislation on Fri October 13 or potentially earlier.

  • Every additional cosponsor and vote sends the message to Saudi Arabia that the killing and deliberate starvation of Yemeni civilians must end.
