In this hearing on the 'Impacts of Border Security and Immigration on Ways and Means Programs' Hearing Before Committee on Ways and Means, U.S. House of Representatives One Hundred Ninth Congress Second Session, July 26, 2006, the presiding Chairman, Bill Thomas, expresses that the Committee will examine the impact of immigration on programs in the Committee's jurisdiction. "The hearing is part of a broader effort to enact meaningful immigration reform that clearly begins at our borders. The House and the Senate approved very different immigration bills in recent months. Both bills contain an important issue in the Committee's jurisdiction, namely, the system by which employers would verify the employment eligibility of their employees. The Senate bill also includes other provisions within the jurisdiction of this Committee. This committee begins by taking a broad look at the effect of illegal immigration and its impact on the Committee jurisdiction to focus on modifying whatever proposals they must deal with, to be able to maximize those agencies and Departments that are going to need to administer whatever it is that the House and the Senate finally agree to do." Witnesses include: Horn, Wade F., U.S. Department of Health and Human Services; Myers, Julie L., U.S. Department of Homeland Security; Everson, Mark W., Internal Revenue Service; Barnhart, Jo Anne B., Social Security Administration; Gustafson, Thomas A., U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
