|WASHINGTON – Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Ala.), House Homeland Security Committee ranking member, today released the following statement after the White House released its strategic approach to the people’s republic of China.
“The Chinese Communist Party represents an existential threat to democratic values across the globe. Their totalitarian rule crushes human rights, undermines democratic institutions, and threatens our way of life. I am proud that President Trump has laid out this strategy to combat the Chinese Communist Party’s strategic ambitions and defend democratic interests around the world. China’s policy of targeting critical infrastructure, exploiting America’s world-class educational institutions, and state-sponsored intellectual property theft will continue to present a challenge that the Department of Homeland Security, Department of Defense, and other federal agencies will combat for the foreseeable future.
“I will continue to work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to address these threats to American freedom.”
