Cosponsor the Prevention of Unconstitutional War with Iran Act

Endorsed by: J Street; VoteVets; Friends Committee on National Legislation; Arms Control Association

 

Dear Colleague,

We invite you to cosponsor H.R. 2354, the Prevention of Unconstitutional War with Iran Act, legislation prohibiting the use of any funds for military operations in or against Iran without Congressional authorization.

One year after President Trump’s misguided decision to withdraw the United States from the international nuclear agreement to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), relations between both nations
have deteriorated.

The Trump Administration’s decision to deploy the USS Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group and a bomber task force to the Middle East along with Iran’s recent reciprocal actions in response to the Administration’s multiple violations of the JCPOA have further
increased the risk of a military confrontation.

Military action should only be used as a measure of last resort and any decision to do so must first be authorized by Congress which has the sole authority to declare war under Article I, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution. The
Prevention of Unconstitutional War with Iran Act will ensure any decision to take military action against Iran is debated and considered by Congress in front of the American people.

To cosponsor, please contact Matt McMurray with Rep. Eshoo at
matthew.mcmurray@mail.house.gov
.

Most gratefully,
 

Anna G. Eshoo                                                Mike Thompson
