A message from Congressman Engel
I have made it clear to Trump – Congress will not stand by while he recklessly incites war with Iran. We cannot plunge the United States into another war in the Middle East. The American people don’t want war, our allies don’t want war and neither do I. Last year legislation I coauthored to stop Trump from going to war with Iran without Congressional approval passed the House and was then gutted by the Senate. I’ve now successfully led a bill through the House to limit Trump’s ability to wage war against Iran through a resolution to the War Powers Act. I will do everything I can as Chairman of the Foreign Affairs committee to prevent war with Iran.
