Dem. Congressman Calls for Ceasefire in Yemen: ‘This is About Basic Humanity’

“There are hundreds of thousands of children in Yemen who will die in the next couple months if we don’t do anything,” Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.) told Bold TV. “There is a famine that could threaten 14 million people. Some things are about politics, this really is not. This is about basic humanity.”

We need to stop the bombing and get food and medicine in to young kids so that we can save their lives,” Khanna continued. “I introduced a resolution in the House, along with Mark Pocan and Walter Jones, colleagues of mine. We had 15 Republicans actually support it, and it just called for a debate on the House so that we could stop our aid to the Saudis, which are bombing Yemeni civilians.”

Khanna expressed disappointment with House Republicans, claiming that they did not allow a “clean vote,” instead adding a line that blocked the Democrats from forcing a vote on the resolution into an unrelated bill about wolves. Khanna said he was still confident about the possibility of a ceasefire at the time of the Bold TV interview because the Senate had taken up a similar resolution.

Since Khanna’s interview with Bold TV, the U.S. Senate passed the bill to end U.S. military assistance for Saudi Arabia in Yemen. This was a bipartisan decision by the Senate, passing 56 to 41, but the House is unlikely to vote on the resolution until the new Congressional session begins in January.
