From the opening statement of Dave Camp: The Subcommittee on Infrastructure and Border Security will hear testimony from Robert Bonner, the Commissioner of the Bureau of Customs and Border Protection within the Department of Homeland Security, and Rich Stana, the Director of the Homeland Security and Justice Division at GAO... Commissioner Bonner, we have invited you here to today to address one aspect of your mission, how to balance security enhancements with the flow of people and commerce across our borders. The global trading system is increasingly reliant on the swift delivery of goods produced overseas. America's economic stability requires that goods and people cross through our borders and in and out of the country regularly without long delays. Our security also requires that we know who and what is entering." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Dave Camp, Christopher Cox, Lincoln Diaz-Balart, Sheila Jackson-Lee, Edward J. Markey, Bill Pascrell, Jr., Loretta Sanchez, John B. Shadegg, Louise McIntosh, Lamar S. Smith, John Sweeney, Jim Turner, Robert C. Bonner, and Richard M. Stana.
