WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner released the following statement on President Donald J. Trump’s recent executive order on privacy:

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.”

    Rep Sensenbrenner-
    Please, please follow through on repeal and replace Obamacare a.s.a.p. As an elderly, female, college graduate and Wisconsinite I voted for President Trump. All of you, senators, representatives and the President need to “stay focused” if you are going to get this ambitious agenda passed. We the people are counting on you. Do not get side-tracked by the flak the Progressive Democrats are throwing at you. Their real agenda is never what they say it is. They could care less about the common man or woman. They would rather think of themselves as champions of righting wrongs for victims. Which is just a ruse for them to tell us, who are not elite, how we should think, feel and, behave. Redistribution of wealth, is their mantra, as long as it is not their wealth being redistributed. they worship Marx, Stalin, and George Soros They want Heaven on earth, but they want to be the Gods and us the servants.
    I’m hoping you did not take any of Soros money in your reelection campaign. That man is evil, has caused real election fraud and should be deported. All of the post-election protests were organized and financed by him. Mr. Obama also has organized volunteers to cause destruction and upheaval to stop the Trump Presidency from carrying out our wishes. Please help him.
