Harris Votes to End U.S. Support for War in Yemen

WASHINGTON, D.C. U.S. Senator Kamala D. Harris (D-CA) released the following statement Wednesday after the Senate voted on a resolution to end U.S. support for the Saudi-led coalition’s war in Yemen. The resolution passed 54-46.

 “What’s happening in Yemen is devastating. Last year, the war killed on average 100 civilians a week, and thousands of children have died of starvation—Congress must take a stand. The resolution is a powerful signal that Congress will not stand by while the crisis worsens. Enough is enough.”
