Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, Lawmakers Introduce Bipartisan Resolution to Stop US Military Support for Saudi Arabia’s Genocidal War in Yemen

Invoking the War Powers Resolution, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (HI-02) joined a bipartisan coalition of lawmakers today in introducing a privileged resolution to stop US military support for Saudi Arabia’s genocidal war in Yemen. US support of this war continues to fuel the world’s worst humanitarian crisis, killing thousands of civilians, with millions suffering from mass starvation, famine and cholera.

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard said: “For too long, the United States has supported Saudi Arabia, turning a blind eye to the horrifying atrocities committed against millions of Yemeni civilians since the start of this genocidal war in 2015. Even after Saudi Arabia dropped a bomb on a school bus that killed 40 children last month, the Trump Administration reaffirmed its support for this illegal war – reportedly to avoid jeopardizing a $2 billion arms deal with Saudi Arabia and the UAE. It is long overdue time for Congress to reassert its role and responsibility provided within the Constitution and end our illegal support for Saudi Arabia’s war now.”
