Washington, Oct 31, 2006 -

Congressman Dana Rohrabacher, R-CA, chairman of the International Relations Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigation, today wrote to Michael Chertoff, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, to call for the U.S. government "to prepare in accordance with U.S. law, contingency plans to block any further money remittances from being sent to Nicaragua in the event that the FSLN enters government."

“If Daniel Ortega, who has already declared himself as an enemy of the United States, takes back control of Nicaragua, you can expect the U.S. government to respond accordingly. We will not permit a hostile, anti-American government to reap the same economic benefits as those who support the United States.”

“My priority is the protection of the American people and a Daniel Ortega win will pose a potential threat to the national security of the United States. Alliances with the likes of Hugo Chavez, Castro and Ahmadinejad, all declared enemies of the U.S., is a cause for grave concern.”
