Washington D.C. – Congressman Michael McCaul, Lead Republican of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, House Republican Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney, and Representatives Ted Yoho, Mike Turner and Mike Gallagher today introduced a resolution denouncing the United Kingdom’s decision that would allow a Chinese Communist Party (CCP) controlled company, Huawei, to build part of their 5G networks.


The lawmakers said: “We are extremely disappointed that the United Kingdom seems poised to allow CCP controlled Huawei to build much of their next generation 5G networks. Huawei equipment is absolute poison – providing them access to any aspect of a 5G network compromises the integrity of the entire system and will result in network data being sent back to Communist Party leaders in Beijing. Investing in Huawei technology only serves to fund the regime’s malign activity at home and across the globe- from their internment of ethnic minorities in western China to spying on and stealing from Americans.


“Our special relationship with the UK is built on our shared commitment to freedom and security. The CCP – and by extension Huawei- is an affront to these core democratic principles. We hope the UK will reverse course on this consequential decision and work with us to build a 5G future that will not only protect our mutual interests but will safeguard the values we share.”
