This is the June 19, 2012 hearing on "Border Security Threats to the Homeland: DHS' Response to Innovative Tactics and Techniques," 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, Subcommittee on Border on Maritime Security will come to order. The subcommittee is meeting today to examine the Department of Homeland Security's response to border security threats. Our witnesses today are Donna Bucella, assistant commissioner of CBP's [Customs and Border Protection] Office of Intelligence and Investigation Liaison; James Dinkins, the executive associate director of Homeland Security Investigations at U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement; Rear Admiral William Lee, deputy for operations policy and capabilities, from the United States Coast Guard; and Rear Admiral Charles Michel, director of the Joint Interagency Task Force--South. When it comes to securing our border the old military adage that no plan survives contact with the enemy is, or should be, at the forefront of our minds. As the Department of Homeland Security has increased its presence along the Southwest Border, drug cartels, human smugglers, and illegal aliens have adapted and improvised to defeat our security measures." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Candice S. Miller, Henry Cuellar, Bennie G. Thompson, Donna A. Bucella, James A. Dinkins, William D. Lee, and Charles D. Michael.
