This is the May 29, 2014 hearing, "United States Department of Homeland Security" before the House Committee on the Judiciary. From the testimony of Jeh C. Johnson: "We in the Department of Homeland Security need to be vigilant against all these potential threats, and I believe we are. I believe it is also particularly important, given the decentralized and diffuse nature of the terrorist threat that the homeland faces, that we spend a lot of time and effort working closely with State and local law enforcement, first responders through training, through working together and JTTFs [Joint Terrorism Task Forces] and so forth, preparedness grants. We have an initiative that I am personally involved in and particularly interested in, countering violent extremism at home through engagements in local communities. I believe it is important, where possible, that we push out our homeland security beyond our borders where we can do so consistent with agreements with other governments. I believe it is important that we establish in as many places as feasible preclearance capabilities in overseas airports that are last points of departure." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Jeh C. Johnson.
