WASHINGTON, D.C. | September 30, 2020
Today, Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC), Republican Leader of the Committee on Education and Labor, issued the following statement on the China Task Force’s release of a detailed report highlighting the generational threat of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP):
“For decades, the CCP has proven to be an untrustworthy adversary while also putting at risk American citizens’ safety and prosperity. The report released today by the China Task Force provides truth and clarity about the CCP’s generational threat to American ideals and creates a detailed roadmap of actions we must consider to meet the greatest geo-political challenge of this generation.
“As the Republican Leader of the Committee on Education and Labor, I strongly agree with the China Task Force’s recommendations to strengthen our 21st century workforce and protect the integrity of American education. Our committee has an obligation to address these issues by cultivating a skilled workforce to spur growth and technological advancement, and by requiring greater transparency of foreign investment in America’s colleges and universities.
“If we want to preserve the American Dream for future generations, we need to implement reforms that will strengthen our workforce and protect our institutions of higher education from the CCP’s evolving threat.”
