The letter states that Space Command’s migration from Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs to Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Ala., “undermines our ability to respond to threats in space and is disruptive to the current mission.”

It also said the decision needed further review, noting the fact that “significant evidence exists that the former president’s political views influenced the final decision.”

Representative Ken Buck, a Republican from Windsor, Colorado, was the only member of the congressional delegation that did not sign the letter. Buck’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
