My name is __________. I am a constituent, and my zip code is _______. I am a member of Indivisible SF.

I’m calling to ask [Representative] to reintroduce and support the Yemen War Powers Resolution which passed in the Senate in December. Thank you.


Background:

We’re asking our House Representatives to introduce and support the Yemen War Powers Resolution S.J.Res.54 (passed by the Senate in Dec. 13, 2018) to condemn Saudi Arabia over the brutal killing of US resident and journalist Jamal Khashoggi and to direct that the unauthorized U.S. military aid supporting Saudi Arabia’s war in the Republic of Yemen be immediately halted until such time as it is authorized by Congress.

This legislation must stipulate that the President/executive branch shall submit to Congress a report assessing the risks posed to United States citizens and the civilian population of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Republic of Yemen and the risk of regional humanitarian crises if the United States were to cease support operations with respect to the conflict between the Saudi-led coalition and the Houthis in Yemen.

Congress has the sole power to declare war under article I, section 8, clause 11 of the United States Constitution, and the abuse of military power by the executive branch must end.
