Today, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) welcomed the White House announcement that President Biden would end U.S. participation in the nearly six-year-old Saudi-led military campaign in Yemen:

“For many years, activists in Yemen and around the world have worked to bring an end to the devastating Saudi-led war in Yemen, which has led to the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.” said Sanders. “In 2018, I helped lead an effort to pass the first War Powers Resolution in history, calling for the United States to end its unauthorized participation in that war. Today’s announcement by President Biden that the United States will end support for offensive operations in the Yemen war, and his naming of a Special Envoy to help resolve this conflict and bring aid and reconstruction to Yemen, are important steps, and a tribute to the work of so many activists over the years.

“Just as importantly, by honoring the bipartisan War Powers Resolution that the previous president vetoed, President Biden has shown a commitment to restoring authority over war where the framers of the U.S. Constitution placed it: with the Congress.” Sanders is the author of Senate Joint Resolution 7, a bipartisan bill introduced with Sens. Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), to end unauthorized military involvement in the war in Yemen, which passed both the House and Senate in 2019.
