Rep. Sensenbrenner Statement on President Trump’s Executive Order on Privacy
“I urge our European allies to be patient as we transition into the new Administration...”
Congressman Sensenbrenner: “I urge our European allies to be patient as we transition into the new Administration, especially referring to President Trump’s new executive order on privacy. The order specifically says, “to the extent applicable with current law.” That means that all current laws supporting the Privacy Shield and the Umbrella Agreement remain in full effect. This includes the Judicial Redress Act. It would take an act of Congress to repeal it and there is no effort I’m aware of in either Congress or the Administration to do so. I remain committed to supporting both the Privacy Shield and the Umbrella Agreement—they are important pillars supporting the Transatlantic Relationship. I am prepared to defend them if they’re challenged, but the Trump administration has not done anything to undermine them. This is a false alarm.”
