On 11/28, the Senate voted 63-37 to bring to the floor a resolution to stop US support of the Saudi-led war in Yemen, which so far has caused over 85,000 children to starve to death with 14 million Yemenis now on the verge of starvation.
Just last March, this same effort had gotten only 44 votes, and was tabled.
CFPA mobilized strongly, especially targeting Senators Menedez and Toomey in our region, as they had voted against the bill last March. Both changed to Yes votes this time!
Thanks to everyone who sent emails, made phone calls, or supported this effort in any way! There are still more steps ahead for Congress to counter Pres. Trump's shameful alliance with the brutal Saudi leadership
Now, this resolution needs to clear a second Senate vote very soon. And it’s going to be down to the wire.
If we don’t keep our pressure on full blast, the powerful Saudi lobby and their buddies in Congress could flip key senators’ votes and scuttle our huge chance to stop enabling Saudi Arabia’s deliberate starvation of 14 million Yemenis. We can’t let that happen.
Call now: Tell your two US Senators to vote YES on S.J.Res.54 as soon as Wednesday and finally cut off U.S. support for Saudi Arabia’s brutal war in Yemen.
