Rubio: Proposed Changes To FISA Would Weaken Our Counter-Terrorism Efforts

Nov 18, 2014 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued the following statement regarding his intention to vote no on the motion to proceed to S. 2685, the “Uniting and Strengthening America by Fulfilling Rights and Ensuring Effective Discipline Over Monitoring Act of 2014”, also known as the “USA Freedom Act”:

“I cannot support the proposed changes to America’s Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). The changes being proposed seem to be a reaction to misinformation and alarmism not rooted in the reality of our important counter-terrorism and surveillance programs, which have kept Americans safe and prevented another 9/11 attack on our shores for more than fourteen years. This legislation will weaken our ability to protect Americans by severely degrading our ability to identify and disrupt terrorists plots against the U.S. and our allies.

“As the rise of ISIL has demonstrated, the world is as dangerous as ever, and extremists are being cultivated and recruited right here at home. This legislation would significantly weaken and, in some cases, entirely do away with some of the most important counter-terrorism capabilities at our disposal, which is why I will not support it.”
