This is the May 8, 2012 hearing on "Measuring Border Security: U.S. Border Patrol's New Strategic Plan and the Path Forward," held before the U.S. House Committee on Homeland Security, Subcommittee on Border and Maritime Security. From the opening statement of Candice S. Miller: "The Committee on Homeland Security, the Subcommittee on Border and Maritime Security, will come to order. The subcommittee is meeting today to examine our Border Patrol's new strategic plan. We have a great lineup of witnesses today. But before we begin talking about our border, I think it is appropriate for this subcommittee to acknowledge the extraordinary professionalism and work that happened with the FBI and the CIA in regard to foiling this recent bombing plot that was happening in Yemen. I would say one thing that is very, very clear to all of us is that the war on terror is not over. We have so many enemies of freedom that are bent on attacking this Nation. I think, again, Americans can be comforted by the fact that we have such high vigilance and so many professional folks in all our agencies. We are going to hear from a number of them today. But they are working on the front lines each and every day to protect us, protect Americans against the enemies of freedom." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Candice S. Miller, Henry Cuellar, Bennie G. Thompson, Michael J. Fisher, Rebecca Gambler, Marc R. Rosenblum, and Sheila Jackson Lee.
