An Announcement from Congresswoman Anna Eshoo
Voted YES on the No War Against Iran Act
President Trump’s assassination of General Soleimani has placed U.S. service members, diplomats, embassies, and allied interests around the world at high risk, and has brought the U.S. and Iran to the brink of war. To add insult to injury, the President failed to properly consult Congress or seek the legal authority to take military action against Iran. The Administration has also failed to fully explain what, exactly, the imminent threat was to the U.S. that required the strike. No Member of Congress carries a brief for General Soleimani or the Iranian government, but no President has the unilateral authority to take our nation to war without authorization from Congress.
The No War Against Iran Act underscores that Congress has not authorized the use of military force against Iran. It also prohibits federal funding for any use of military force in or against Iran unless Congress has declared war or enacted a specific authorization that meets the requirements of the War Powers Resolution. I’ve long had concerns about the Trump Administration’s provocative behavior toward Iran, beginning with the President tearing up the Iran nuclear agreement, and it’s why I introduced the Prevention of Unconstitutional War with Iran Act last April. My bill restricts this Administration and any future administrations from using any funds appropriated by Congress to take military action in and against Iran without authorization from Congress.
