Saudi Arabia's war against the Houthis in Yemen has led to an extraordinary humanitarian crisis. 17 million Yemenis are now suffering from food insecurity. 16 million lack access to water and sanitation. The Saudi-led bombing campaign has resulted in significant civilian casualties and blocked delivery of life-saving humanitarian aid. The U.S. provides mid-air refueling for Saudi and UAE warplanes conducting air strikes in Yemen, but Congress has never authorized U.S. participation in the war.

Representative Khanna recently introduced bipartisan legislation, invoking the War Powers resolution, which called on Congress to either debate and authorize or end U.S. involvement in the war.
