Over the weekend, U.S. Rep. Neal Dunn, R-Fla., who sits on the U.S. House Select Committee on the Strategic Competition between the U.S. and the Chinese Communist Party, spent the weekend in New York, including weighing in on the “unauthorized Chinese Communist Party (CCP) ‘police station’ that was recently raided by the FBI in New York City.”
Duun was joined by U.S. Rep. Mike Gallagher, R-Wisc., the chairman of the select committee, and U.S. Rep. Ritchie Torres, D-NY, in holding a media event at the CCP office in Chinatown.
“By opening unauthorized ‘police stations,’ the CCP prove they do not take the Biden administration seriously. We must protect our citizens and the many asylum seekers who have taken refuge in our nation,” said Dunn. “I’m proud to stand alongside my colleagues as we work to expose the CCP’s many human rights violations and aggressions.”
The congressman added that he is looking into a shipbuilding company that recently beat out one in his North Florida district for a Coast Guard contract.
“Congressman Dunn is also investigating the CCP’s ties to Austal, a foreign-owned shipbuilding company that won a $3.3 billion U.S. Coast Guard offshore patrol cutter contract over Panama City’s Eastern Shipbuilding Group. This is after Eastern Shipbuilding completed the contract for the first four offshore patrol cutters on time and on budget despite Hurricane Michael’s devastation.” the congressman’s office noted.
“It is alarming that a company that has won multiple defense and homeland security contracts has close ties to the CCP. This is a national security threat and deserves more attention than it is getting,” said Dunn.
The congressman’s office added he “aims to continue this investigation into what information the CCP is gaining from its relationship with Austal.”
