WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Ron Estes (R-Kansas) released the following statement on Tuesday following his confirmation to the House Committee on Homeland Security:
“America faces mounting threats to our national security from around the globe. This includes the increased threat faced by Islamist terrorism, foreign cyber attacks, and an unsecured southern border. Our federal government has a constitutional responsibility to provide for the safety and security of all Americans. Within Kansas' 4th Congressional District, we know this well as Wichita is home to McConnell Air Force Base, which provides a key element to defending our homeland. I'm honored to serve on this important committee and believe my public and private sector experience will allow me to make a meaningful contribution to ensure America's continued protection from those who wish to do us harm."
