Senate Will Vote on Sanders' Yemen Resolution Tomorrow (Dec. 12)

Senate Will Vote on Sanders' Yemen Resolution Tomorrow

Tuesday, December 11, 2018

WASHINGTON, Dec. 11 Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) issued the following statement announcing that the Senate will vote tomorrow on the resolution to end U.S. support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen:

"Tomorrow, I will move to proceed to S.J. Res. 54, the resolution I have offered with Senators Lee and Murphy to end U.S. involvement in the disastrous Saudi-led war in Yemen. I am optimistic that a bipartisan coalition of senators will vote to make clear that the United States will no longer support Saudi Arabia in its incredibly destructive war. The Saudi intervention in Yemen has created the worst humanitarian disaster in the world, with millions of people facing imminent starvation. The time is long overdue for the United States to stop following the lead of Saudi Arabia, a brutal regime that recently murdered a dissident journalist and has no respect for human rights. Further, and importantly, the Senate must reassert its constitutional authority and end our support of this unauthorized and unconstitutional war."
