Keeping Our Nation Safe
John Katko has been one of the foremost leaders in Congress on national security, passing legislation to plug dangerous security gaps at our nation’s airports, disrupt the flow of terrorist fighters into the United States, strengthen our military, and shut down business to foreign drug kingpins. John believes we need to secure our nation’s borders, including our Northern border, and has supported legislation requiring 100% border security.
As a Freshman member of Congress, John was entrusted to lead a panel examining the threat of foreign fighters traveling into the United States, and proposed comprehensive solutions to stop the threat. Additionally, Congressman Katko leads a panel in charge of overseeing transportation security. He has ushered twelve separate security reforms through the House of Representatives, five of which have been signed into law by the President.
John knows that strong national security is vital to a strong economy, a stable world, and a free society. He is committed to working tirelessly to keep our country safe, while respecting and protecting our Constitutional rights.
