Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi

Representing the 8th District of Illinois

Protecting The Homeland

The defense and the security of our nation are extremely important to my work in Congress and our country as a whole. America's security impacts every single American and cannot become a partisan issue.

Since the horrendous attacks on September 11, 2001, threats to our nation's security have become more complex and have required America's security forces to adopt new and innovative tactics. From cyber attacks to home-grown terrorism, we need a nimble and strong response to these ever-evolving threats. We must make sure we provide the tools necessary to the federal agencies entrusted with keeping us safe.

While maintaining our military superiority is important to continue our fight in rooting out terrorism, we must also remember to protect and promote our exceptional standing among nations by engaging in active diplomacy. We can respond to emerging threats at home and abroad without sacrificing American values or the rights and liberties that are the bedrock of our democracy.
