SEN. CHUCK SCHUMER (D-NY): The entire world has changed dramatically since 2002, and it's time the laws the books catch up with those changes.
These AUMFs have outlived their use.
These repeals will not harm our service members abroad, nor will it hinder our ability to keep Americans safe.
SEN. JAMES RISCH (R-ID): I don't support the repeal of the 2002 AUMF at this time.
This needs to be repealed, there's no question about it.
It should be replaced by something.
And that is one of the real problems here, because the debate to do that has been ongoing for as long as I have been here.
GEOFF BENNETT: It is unclear whether the Republican-controlled House will support the repeal.

This afternoon, White House national security spokesman John Kirby played down the dispute, but urged compromise in Israel.
JOHN KIRBY, NSC Coordinator For Strategic Communications: One of the great things that we share, our two countries share, are some basic, fundamental democratic institutions and principles, and one of them is,again, the broadest possible base of public support for major changes like this, changes which affect the system of checks and balances.

RANIEL MURILLO, Venezuela Migrant (through translator): To all of those people who died, the guards could've opened the gates to let the migrants out.
They didn't open the gate, leaving them locked in.
The guards didn't help the migrants because they didn't feel like it.
The guards treat you badly.
