FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


ICYMI: LOS ANGELES NEWS GROUP EDITORIALREP. TED LIEU ON ENCRYPTION POLICY

Online at the websites of the Los Angeles News Group, the Publisher’s Editorial Board
explores Congressman Lieu’s leadership in Congress to ensure encryption policies protect the privacy of all Americans.

“Lieu understands that prizing digital privacy doesn’t put you on the side of the evildoers — in fact, breaking down encryption would make it easier for terrorists and criminals to attack our businesses and national defense.” 

“Lieu has co-authored the Ensuring National Constitutional Rights for Your Private Telecommunications (ENCRYPT) Act of 2016,
which would head off a state-by-state patchwork of laws weakening encryption.
Lieu also is a leader of a push to create a 9/11-style commission of experts and advocates in the fields of
technology, law enforcement, economics, privacy rights and others to sort out digital privacy and national security issues.”

“This is the right side of an old American issue.
As Lieu correctly said, making some criminal investigations easier isn’t worth trading our national and economic security.”
