Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner has received the prestigious Robert Schuman Medal from the European People’s Party during a ceremony in Brussels. He is only the second American to receive this honor; the first was President George H. W. Bush.
 
The Robert Schuman Medal is awarded to public figures who advance the cause of peace, help reunite the continent of Europe, and fight for the values of freedom and democracy. Congressman Sensenbrenner’s tireless work on behalf of privacy and data-sharing issues between the United States and European Union has helped build positive international relationships and strengthened America’s international security.
 
Congressman Sensenbrenner: “I want to thank my European friends and colleagues for presenting me with the Robert Schuman Medal. I’m honored and humbled by this experience and look forward to continuing my work on the critical issues of privacy and data-sharing, as well as strengthening US-EU relationships.”
