From the opening statement of Dan Lungren: "As many of you may know, the issue of border security, the issue of immigration, the issue of the threat of terrorism and its implications for both of those first two subjects has garnered a lot of attention in the Congress and throughout the country. There are a number of hearings being held around the country on these subjects. Our Subcommittees believed it was important for us to ensure that the northern border not be left out, that we have an opportunity to look at the unique circumstances that we find on our northern border, that we understand in all of its facets the seriousness of attending to the issue of securing our border on the north, and at the same time trying to understand even better the relationship that exists between our country and our neighbors to the north and attempt to come up with solutions to the problems that are presented without, as we suggested, unduly interfering with the steady flow of commerce with our northern neighbors." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Daniel E. Lungren, Loretta Sanchez, Marks Asmundson, Norman D. Dicks, Sheila Jackson-Lee, Dave G. Reichert, Thomas Hardy, Ronald Henley, Timothy J. Lowenberg, Dale Brandland, Martin Collacott, David B. Harris, Gregory Johnson, K. Jack Riley, Donald J. Alper, Maria Cantwell, Rick Larsen, Davis S.
