Alien Gang Removal Act of 2005, Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Immigration, Border Security, and Claims of the Committee on the Judiciary, House of Representatives, One Hundred Ninth Congress, First Session on H.R. 2933, June 28, 2005   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the opening statement of John Conyers Jr.: "This is an important hearing because it's an opportunity for the concern we have about terrorist gangs to have a full hearing along with the restraints and concern that we have about the automatic deportation of individuals on the basis of association. We all agree, Mr. Chairman, that violent immigrants who commit crimes should be deported, and particularly we agree that those who associate with violent gangs, now who are springing up in many of our southern regions and particularly on the border, should be in line for deportation, those who perpetrate violent acts and those who may be associated with gangs that ultimately may be engaged in terrorist acts. But I think there is a clear demarcation, and that is that sheer membership, sheer association should not equate to deportation."
