I invite you to join in support my bicameral, bipartisan letter informing Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos of the threats posed by Huawei’s involvement in our academic institutions. Huawei Technologies, a “national champion” of the People’s Republic of
China, has formed a series of research partnerships with over 50 universities in the United States.
This company has a history of nefarious activity, targeted at illegally collecting information from the United States. As the bipartisan report of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence in 2012 recommended, “[b]ased on available classified and
unclassified information, Huawei and vii ZTE cannot be trusted to be free of foreign state influence and thus pose a security threat to the United States and to our systems.”
