Congresswoman Barbara Lee: We Must Resist Keystone XL Pipeline

Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Barbara Lee released the following statement today in response to the State Department’s issuance of a permit for construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline.

“At every turn, President Trump has shown that he will place the profits of billionaires and Big Oil above the well-being of American families. The Keystone Pipeline is yet another corporate giveaway that will wreak havoc on our environment and damage the health of countless individuals.

“I stand with the American people who have forcefully rejected this deadly pipeline. We must continue to resist efforts by this Administration to line the pockets of the fossil fuel industry at the expense of our planet and its inhabitants.”
