Last week, U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., named four congressmen from the Sunshine State to the GOP’s American Security Task Force.
McCarthy named Florida Republican U.S. Reps. Mario Diaz-Balart, Carlos Gimenez, John Rutherford and Greg Steube to the task force which “is dedicated to tackling issues that threaten our national security such as the crisis at our southern border, violent crime on the rise, and cyberattacks, such as the attack on the Colonial Pipeline earlier this year.”
U.S. Rep. John Katko, R-NY, will lead the task force.
Steube weighed in on his assignment on Thursday.
“Our country is in crisis,” Steube said. “Since President Biden has taken office, violent crime has surged, our southern border has been overwhelmed, and our country has faced unprecedented cyberattacks. I am honored to have the opportunity to serve alongside my Republican colleagues as we navigate solutions to these problems and work towards the goal of keeping American families safe for generations to come.”
