Ft. Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) May 27, 2011
Ship Strong for America (shipstrong.org), an organization dedicated to preserving the strength of our nation’s maritime industry and homeland security, urges Secretary Napolitano to fully enforce American shipping laws and stand strong for American shippers and ship builders.
“Violating federal law should not be a business as usual business practice at the expense of American shipping jobs,” said Tony Munoz, director for Ship Strong for America. “The American shipping industry urges the Department of Homeland Security to fully enforce the laws that protect our nation's maritime industry.”
In addition to building U.S. commercial ships, the American maritime industry builds America’s military vessels, which protect our boarders, sail the seven seas and keep Americans safe at home or abroad.
Further, Ship Strong encourages Escopeta Oil & Gas to embark its foreign vessel on foreign soil, and turn the tug around.
