Munich Germany
Thursday, May 16, 2019

Thank you for the gracious introduction. It is wonderful to be here in Munich on German-American Data Protection Day with such a distinguished audience.

At the U.S. Department of Justice, I serve as the Deputy Assistant Attorney General in the Criminal Division overseeing cybercrime and child exploitation issues. In this role, I have seen up close how far-flung criminals can, with a few keystrokes, inflict devastating harm across the globe, and how criminal investigations today increasingly entail cross-border evidence and witnesses. Working efficiently and collaboratively with foreign law enforcement partners has proven to be an absolute necessity. Dismantling major criminal networks cannot be accomplished by one country; it depends increasingly on intensive joint operations by our police and our prosecutors.

Europe and the United States, perhaps more than the rest of the world, together face unprecedented challenges to combat crime in the 21st Century. These are challenges that are compounded by dramatic advances in technology and the exponential rise of electronic evidence. And such challenges are compounded still further by the unprecedented proliferation of platforms and the globalization of companies, which are increasingly storing their data in other countries. From text messages between plotters of a terrorist attack, to cell phone location records of a murderer, to chat sessions capturing the sexual exploitation of a child – virtually every serious threat we investigate today requires access to electronic evidence.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Department of the Interior’s Assistant Secretary for Land and Minerals Management Joe Balash and Members of the Western Caucus released statements following the reinstatement of two Twin Metals Minnesota LLC-held hardrock mineral leases located on the Superior National Forest in Northern Minnesota:

U.S. Department of the Interior’s Assistant Secretary for Land and Minerals Management Joe Balash: "Mining on public lands balances conservation strategies and policies with the need to produce minerals that add value to the lives of all Americans by providing raw materials used in the manufacture of medical aids, automobiles, smart phones and computers, and household appliances. Under President Trump’s leadership and direction from the Secretary, this action may reduce the vulnerability to disruption of critical mineral supplies if it leads to the development and production of critical minerals in an environmentally responsible, regulatory-consistent, and economically feasible manner. Mining strategic metals in the United States is beneficial to national security, national and local economies, and job creation."

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Paul A Gosar, D.D.S, (AZ-04), La Paz County Supervisors D. L. Wilson, Holly Irwin, Duce Minor, Yavapai County Supervisor Tom Thurman, Bullhead City Mayor Tom Brady, and University President Dr. P. Barry Butler released the following statements applauding the signing of S.47, by President Trump that included seven bills that will benefit Arizona:

U.S. Representative Paul Gosar (AZ-04) said: "Today, is a great day for Arizona as President Trump signed five of my bills and two other bills that are good for the state into public law as part of a historic lands package. These victories are bottom-up initiatives brought to us by county supervisors and people on the ground. My five Arizona bills included in the package remove an outdated restriction limiting economic growth for Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Yavapai County, convey nearly 6,000 acres back to La Paz county to allow for new economic development opportunities in a county with only 5% private land, benefit local communities and families in Cornville by allowing for expansion of Windmill Park, allow Bullhead city to provide new recreational opportunities and address the Bureau of Reclamation maintenance backlog to ensure an abundant supply of clean water and power for future generations.   more...
WASHINGTON, D.C -- U.S Representative Paul Gosar, D.D.S. introduced H.R. 1190, which aims to prohibit an illegal alien from being eligible for postsecondary education benefits that are not available to all citizens and nationals of the United States.

“It is despicable that taxpayer funded institutions are blatantly ignoring the law and putting illegal aliens ahead of American students,” said Congressman Gosar. “American students should not be cut out of opportunities being offered to illegal aliens. Closing this loophole would ensure that American students are provided the same opportunities and benefits that are granted to illegal aliens.”

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) released the following statement after introducing H.R. 274, the Cottonwood Land Exchange Act, at the request of Yavapai County Board of Supervisors, in order to facilitate a land exchange between the County and Coconino National Forest near Cottonwood, Arizona for the purposes of connecting separated tracts and consolidating land:

“The Cottonwood Land Exchange Act is common sense legislation that will benefit local communities and families in Cornville by allowing for expansion of Windmill Park,” said Congressman Gosar. “The consolidation of the multiple checkerboards of land will yield significant benefits to the people of Arizona. This legislation is result of years of collaboration between Yavapai County officials, community members and the Forest Service.”
