Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Today, the entire Colorado congressional delegation sent a letter to President Biden urging him to conduct a thorough review of the decision to move U.S. Space Command from Colorado Springs, CO to Huntsville, AL. The letter lays out the national security, personnel, political, and transparency concerns of the Trump Administration’s decision.

 Congressman Lamborn issued the following statement:

 “I am still extremely disappointed by the horrendous decision to uproot U.S. Space Command from its home in Colorado Springs. Over the course of half a century, the Pikes Peak region has developed into our country’s center of excellence for national security space operations. Colorado is home to eight of the nine current Space Force Deltas, an extraordinary number of space-warfighting units, commands, missions, and the largest aerospace economy per capita in the United States. Most importantly, Colorado Springs is already home to this critical mission which safeguards our very way of life. We cannot afford to waste time or resources moving the personnel and infrastructure to another location. Our adversaries are actively seeking to neutralize or counter our space assets. They know that by combatting our space capabilities, they will dramatically undermine our military strength and economy. I will continue to fight to ensure that U.S. Space Command remains in Colorado Springs. I’m thankful for the support of the entire Colorado congressional delegation on this letter, along with the unified community and state support. President Biden must reverse this decision and keep Space Command in Colorado Springs for the good of our nation.”
