House Republicans called on Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) to reconvene Congress to vote on a bill that would prevent U.S. troops from leaving Afghanistan until Americans are evacuated from the country, after ISIS killed at least twelve U.S. troops and dozens of Afghans in a terror attack.

The bill, introduced by Representative Mike Gallagher (R., Wisc.) on Monday, would require daily updates on the number of Americans flown out of the Kabul airport.

“Our enemies have taken advantage of the chaotic nature of Biden’s withdrawal,” Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said in a statement. “Speaker Pelosi must bring Congress back before Aug 31 so we can…pass Representative Gallagher’s legislation prohibiting the withdrawal of our troops until every American is out of Afghanistan.”

Gallagher echoed McCarthy’s remarks in his own statement.

“This tragedy is the direct result of the failure of this incompetent withdrawal plan, and I fear the worst is still to come,” Gallagher said. “Congress must immediately reconvene & take control of this situation, which has spiraled out of control.”

Pelosi’s deputy chief of staff Drew Hammill slammed McCarthy in a response on Twitter.
