Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX23) Introduces H. Con. Res. 50

Congressman Will Hurd (R-TX23) introduced a bill condemning the human rights violations of the Houthi rebels in Yemen, particularly their cooperation with Iranian supporters.

The bill is unique given it follows months of legislation on Capitol Hill targeting the humanitarian consequences of Saudi Arabia’s actions. In contrast, Rep. Hurd’s bill depicts Saudi Arabia as a victim, calling on the House to condemn Houthi attacks on Saudi civilian infrastructure and personnel. Additionally, the bill condemns the financial, moral and logistic support given to the Houthis by Iran and Iranian actors.
