The House should condemn human rights violations in the Yemen conflict and Iran’s support for the Houthi rebels, while also acknowledging that the U.S. is supporting the coalition led by Saudi Arabia without specific congressional authorization for that assistance.
This resolution is nothing more than a gesture as it wouldn’t have the force of law or compel Congress to authorize military involvement in the Yemen war between the Saudi-led coalition and Iranian-backed Houthi rebels or cut off that assistance.
