This is an historic day. For the first time in 45 years the U.S. Senate came together to end an unauthorized war. We have woken up the Congress to its constitutional responsibility. This is the beginning of a new day. pic.twitter.com/RudmlwSBfH
I'm thrilled to see a ceasefire agreement in Hodeidah. This is a key step forward to ending this war and suffering. This shows the power of grassroots activism and congressional pressure. We need to pass the Yemen WPR and end the war. twitter.com/AP/status/1073…
56 Senators just voted to end U.S. support for the Saudi war in Yemen. We're standing up to hold Saudi Arabia accountable for its role in the devastation and humanitarian disaster.It's time for @SpeakerRyan and the @HouseGOP to vote on the House floor.
.@timkaine calls out @HouseGOP for blocking debate and constitutional votes on #Yemen: “If @SpeakerRyan thinks on his way out the door his last public service gift to humanity is covering up for Saudi Arabia, great, he can make that his legacy,” #YemenCantWait #stoparmingsaudi twitter.com/nytimes/status…

We underestimate how much citizen groups matter on national security. We @plough_shares join @SenSanders.

Today we have brought Republicans and Democrats together in a very historic moment to take back the Congress' constitutional responsibility on matters of war. pic.twitter.com/LzRmGaV3a0
With this vote, we are one step closer to reviving our constitutional framework - where the power to declare war lies with Congress, not the executive branch - and we have taken a step towards removing ourselves from the spread of human suffering in Yemen.
