Washington, D.C. - House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement today calling on Congress to take immediate action to halt a deal allowing a United Arab Emirates company to take over six major U.S. seaports:

“America’s ports are often the gateway into and out of our country. The unilateral decision of the Bush Administration to allow the sale of port operations to a foreign government raises serious national security concerns.

“The House Homeland Security Committee must hold hearings next week on this critical issue and others pertaining to foreign ownership. In the meantime, Congress must put an immediate halt to this deal that the Administration hastily approved in secret without input from the Congress or state officials and without a thorough review of how it might affect America 's security.

“More than five years after 9/11, America is not as safe as it should be. Without implementing all of the recommendations of the bipartisan 9/11 Commission, and creating a comprehensive plan for securing our ports, the President and the Republican Congress have not fulfilled their sacred responsibility to keep Americans safe.”


has there been any focus on port security since the dems took congress AND since obama became president or was this an issue only while bush was president and congress was repub?

sad what nancy will say when obviously (we now know) she could not have cared less about port security.

not only are the dems not interested in securing the southern border, they also aren't interested in port security.

Life..... Nobody gets out alive.
