From the opening statement of John F. Tierney: "...today this Subcommittee on National Security and Foreign Affairs focuses on this increasingly urgent national security challenge, one that is not half way around the world but one that is quite literally at our doorstep, the increasing violence along the U.S.-Mexico border. And that violence is increasingly spilling over onto U.S. soil. [...]. Today's hearing asks the central question: Are there laws and activities on the American side of the border fueling this violence in Mexico?"
