From the testimony of Michael Chertoff: "Today I would like to summarize the Department's efforts across five key areas: Strengthening border security through greater deployment of infrastructure, manpower, and technology; Enhancing interior enforcement at worksites, providing new tools to employers, and identifying and arresting fugitives, criminals, and illegal alien gang members; Making temporary worker programs more effective; Improving the current immigration system; and Assimilating new immigrants into our civic culture and society. In each category, you will see clear progress over the past year, reflecting our determination to make a down-payment on credibility with the American people and to meet their rising demands to secure the border and tighten immigration enforcement."
