Black-Tar Heroin, Meth and Cocaine Continue to Flood the United States from Mexico: Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Criminal Justice, Drug Policy, and Human Resources of the Committee on Government Reform, House of Representatives, One Hundred Sixth Congress, Second Session, June 30, 2000   [open pdf - 3MB]

From the opening statement of John L. Mica: "As a Nation, we must face certain irrefutable facts. Increasing the amount of illegal drugs, particularly heroin, coming from or through Mexico, in fact, is ending up on our streets. Heroin and those who traffic in it spread and finance gang violence, crime, destroy young lives, and undermine our communities and our very quality of life. The question remains how can we best stop what is going on, how can we best bring the situation under control, and that is why we are here today, to hear from witnesses who are involved directly on the front lines of this effort. I am pleased to have before us two panels this morning, and we will have additional statements by Members submitted to the record." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Fabienne Brooks, W. Royal Furgeson Jr., Luis E. Barker, Joseph D. Keefe, Ed Logan, Mario Medina, John L. Mica.
