Dingell Calls for Congressional Debate on US Involvement in Yemen Conflict

November 14, 2018
Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC - After House Republican Leadership denied a floor vote on a War Powers resolution that would end U.S. involvement in the Yemen conflict, Congresswoman Debbie Dingell issued the following statement:

“The war in Yemen has cost thousands of lives and created a devastating humanitarian crisis, and U.S. participation in this conflict was never authorized by Congress. By preventing debate on the Yemen War Powers resolution, the current Republican leadership is abdicating Congress’ Constitutional responsibilities in favor of short-term political considerations. U.S. military involvement in the Yemen conflict must be addressed by Congress, and I will continue to work with my colleagues to ensure that this resolution receives the consideration that it deserves.”
