Urge House Members to force a vote before Mattis attacks Hodeida.
The “Saudi-led coalition” has dropped leaflets on the Yemeni port of Hodeida warning residents of an impending offensive.  An assault on Hodeida, the Washington Post warns, could be the trigger for famine in Yemen.  But General Mattis continues to push for approval of direct U.S. participation in the threatened assault , with Pentagon officials claiming that political compromise will be more likely after “one more round of bombing.”
Urge House Members to force a vote before Mattis attacks Hodeida by signing our petition at MoveOn.
“Right now the Saudi-led coalition is obstructing vital supplies arriving at Yemen’s main port of Hodeida,” Save the Children says. “On three occasions this year the coalition has held up our shipments of life-saving medical aid – including antibiotics, surgical equipment, medicine to treat diseases like malaria and cholera, and supplies to keep malnourished children alive.” Save the Children says aid must be able to reach children quickly, or international pledges of aid to prevent famine will mean nothing. 
55 Members of the House have affirmed that Mattis’ proposed attack on Hodeida would be illegal without prior Congressional authorization. California Rep. Ted Lieu said, “President Trump does not have the authority to send U.S. forces to battle the Houthis in Yemen, period.”  Members of the House can force a vote to prevent Mattis from attacking Hodeida without Congressional authorization by invoking the War Powers Resolution.
