Companies that allow Huawei into their networks risk their national security and give Communist China direct access to the most sensitive data of their citizens, including medical records, financial information, and social media accounts.
"I write to urge the United Kingdom, our closest ally, not to include Huawei Technologies or other Chinese state-directed telecommunications company products in your fifth-generation (5G) telecommunications network infrastructure. As you know, Huawei is not a standard private-sector company."
Heavily subsidized by China’s government and the Chinese Communist Party, Huawei is poised to become the leading commercial provider of 5G, which will have far-reaching effects for U.S. economic and national security.
On Thursday, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., joined U.S. Sens. John Cornyn, R-Tex., James Risch, R-Idaho, Angus King, I-Maine, Tom Cotton, R-Ark., and Susan Collins, R-Maine, to send a letter to Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) Chairman Neil Chatterjee, asking for his assurance that the FERC understands the threat posed to U.S. national security by Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. due its connection to the Chinese regime.
The senators wrote that the approval of these export licenses would undermine the original intent of the Entity List designation, allowing Huawei to continue to pose a serious threat to U.S. telecommunications infrastructure and national security more broadly.
Rubio paired up with U.S. Rep. Jim Banks, R-Ind., to send a letter to U.S. Education Sec. Betty DeVos about Chinese state-directed Huawei Technologies partnering up with higher ed institutions which, they insisted, could be a security problem.
