Rep. Tom Emmer seeks declaration of war on ISIL


WASHINGTON — U.S. Rep. Tom Emmer, R-Minn., is leading the charge to officially declare war against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, giving the president more sweeping authority to confront an enemy.

This is the first time a declaration of war has been authored by a member of Congress since 1941 — although Congress has authorized use of military force several times since then, including in both Iraq in 2002 and Afghanistan in 2001.
