The other week, Senator Booker was among just 13 cosponsors of Sen. Chris Murphy’s amendment to the Defense Appropriations Act that would have blocked funding for the Saudi-led coalition’s war crimes in Yemen.
Ultimately, Senate leadership stopped the amendment from getting a vote.
But Sen. Booker joined only a few others in saying: Enough is enough. And he has to hear about it from constituents like you.
This month alone, the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen — aided by the United States — bombed and killed over 60 Yemeni children in two separate airstrikes. It’s absolutely heartbreaking.
Sen. Booker made no powerful Washington friends by taking a stand against the Saudi-led coalition. But he did the right thing.
