This statement was released yesterday by Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez:

Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez

SANTA ANA, CA – Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez (CA-47), Vice Chair of the House Homeland Security Committee, today issued the following statement regarding news that U.S. security officials have intercepted two packages of Yemeni origin with explosive devices inside. According to the New York Times, the intended destinations of the packages were two places of Jewish worship in Chicago:

“As Vice Chair of the House Homeland Security Committee, I want to commend local and federal law enforcement officials and airport cargo screeners for their quick action in response to this credible terrorist threat against the United States. The relevant authorities continue to work together to investigate the origins of these explosive devices. As the President stated earlier, today’s events in Newark and Philadelphia serve as a reminder that we must always be vigilant against potential acts of terrorism.”

“I also want to underscore the important work Congress is doing to screen cargo shipments that may constitute threats against our security. In September, I co-introduced the Air Cargo Security Act of 2010, a bipartisan bill that would establish federal air cargo screening centers for packages carried by foreign and domestic air carriers. Now more than ever, the U.S. needs a coordinated cargo security program for planes and trucks entering our country. I hope the events of the last twenty-four hours will result in the Transportation Security Administration taking concrete action to develop one.”

Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez is proud to represent California’s 47th Congressional District, which includes the cities of Anaheim, Garden Grove, Santa Ana, and parts of Fullerton in Orange County. She serves as Vice Chair of the House Homeland Security Committee and is the ranking female member on the House Armed Services Committee. Rep. Sanchez is also a member of the bipartisan, bicameral Joint Economic Committee.

    Loretta Sanchez has been in congress for too long.She doesn’t have the intelligence to be a leader, she is just a rubber stamp for the Obama administration.Under her party’s leadership our country has seen a lingering recession, high unemployment,corruption in government, wastefull spending and high deficits. I don’t believe voters want to continue with the status quo. Like all the other Democrats who will be defeated, Loretta Sanchez should also be retired from office.

      I second your statement, Loretta Sanchez, is no leader but a PUPPET for the special interest groups. Loretta Sanchez is a sell out and she lacks all the qualities of true leadership. She has no integrity, no values. No matter how hard Liberal OC tries to praise her (only because she pays for the advertisements/articles) on their website, US D47 voters are NOT voting for her! Even Loretta Sanchez Camp have stated LORETTA KNOWS SHE IS A GONER. SHE IS ALREADY PACKING HER BAGS AND DON’T LET THAT DOOR HIT ON YOUR WAY OUT! LIBERAL OC WHO IS GOING TO FUND YOUR WEBSITE ONCE LORETTA SANCHEZ IS GONE? MAYBE VAN TRAN OR CECILIA IGLESIAS. OH WAIT YOU BURNED THOSE BRIDGES ALREADY.

    Congresswoman Sanchez sounds more like a Republican every day.

    Press the panic button to scare people & keep their support for WAR funding, etc, & pander to the special interests that profit from huge waste of American resources.

    Maybe that’s why she & Clinton get along so well together – he tanked our country supporting Special Interests initiated, anti-USA worker – Republican Legislation – Gramm/ Leach/ Bliley Act, NAFTA, PNTR, etc.

    Results – the plundered economy we “enjoy” today. “Thanks” Bill.
