Rubio Statement on Huawei Lawsuit Against the U.S. Government

Mar 7, 2019 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued the following statement regarding Huawei’s lawsuit against the U.S. government that alleges Section 889 of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2018, which bans federal agencies from buying Huawei technology, is unconstitutional:

“Huawei is a Chinese state-directed telecom company with a singular goal: undermine foreign competition by stealing trade secrets and intellectual property, and through artificially low prices backed by the Chinese government. The Communist Chinese government poses the greatest, long-term threat to America’s national and economic security. The U.S. must be vigilant in preventing Chinese state-directed telecoms companies, like Huawei, from undermining and endangering critical U.S. systems and infrastructure. That is why Congress recently acted well within our constitutional authority to block Huawei from our telecommunications equipment market due to concerns with the company’s links to China’s intelligence services.”
