National Security

Congresswomen Nancy Pelosi and Anna Eshoo greet U.S. Soldiers with the 3rd Cavalry Regiment from California during a visit to Tactical Base in Gamberi, Afghanistan.

Our nation’s leaders have no greater responsibility than ensuring the safety and security of the American people. That means a tough and smart national security strategy to combat terrorism at home and abroad by eliminating any threats to our people and our country’s infrastructure.

The United States works to combat global terror by working with our allies to protect human rights and prevent radicalization. Congress must also work to ensure that our military and the brave men and women who keep us safe have the resources they need to eliminate security threats while also maintaining appropriate oversight of the Department of Defense (DoD) to preserve  the accountability, transparency, and fiscal discipline of the federal defense budget.

Congress must also protect our nation from the threat posed by cyber-attacks. To secure a reliable and resilient cyberspace that reflects our country's values, we must prevent breaches in our national security while preserving a space that promotes the innovation, expression, and security of the American people. We can provide critical protections for our nation's technological infrastructure by building public-private partnerships, promoting cybersecurity education and awareness campaigns and investing in the next generation of cybersecurity professionals. In doing so, we will minimize risks to this vital infrastructure and decrease the potential for breaches that place our government, private enterprise, and economy in peril.

To move our nation forward in uncertain times, Congress will work to preserve our alliances abroad and ensure our national security at home by promoting peace, progress, and prosperity across the globe.
