We Must Confront The CCP’s Grave Security Threat
This week, I held a House Homeland Security Subcommittee hearing to assess the U.S. homeland’s vulnerabilities to Chinese Communist Party (CCP) aggression.
On April 20, 2023, Homeland Security Secretary Mayorkas issued the “90-day People’s Republic of China Threats Sprint,” displaying an encouraging shift in the Department’s focus on threats emanating from the CCP. However, 90 days are not sufficient to undo the CCP’s 73-year-long campaign to undermine the United States. China has been racing ahead for decades, while we “sprint” to catch up. We must do more.
Both DHS and the FBI need to form long-term strategic plans, like the ones established under the Trump administration, that can counter evolving threats from the CCP now and into the future.
I will continue working in a bipartisan manner to confront the grave security threat posed by the CCP. Watch the full hearing here.
