Rep. Porter Statement on Passage of War Powers Resolution

Washington, January 9, 2020

WASHINGTON—U.S. Congresswoman Katie Porter (CA-45) today released the below statement following the House vote to de-escalate tensions with Iran:

“Today, I joined my House colleagues in passing a resolution to prevent the Trump Administration from further escalating hostilities with Iran without Congressional approval. The American people do not want a war, yet this Administration’s actions are putting American lives at risk and increasing the risk of another destabilizing conflict in the region. It’s time for a thoughtful strategy that prevents further violence and keeps America safe.”
