This is from the 2 April 2014 hearing "Taking Down the Cartels: Examining United States - Mexico Cooperation," before the U.S. House Committee on Homeland Security. From Chairman McCaul's Opening Statement: "Because of the threats to both the United States and Mexico stemming from organized crime, both of our nations share security objectives for our borders -- keep threats out, but ensure the expeditious flow of commerce. Our respective law enforcement agencies have been working closely together to come to a common understanding of how to synchronize enforcement operations on each side of the border. However, we cannot just focus on our shared border, Mexico must stop criminals long before they reach us. As Mexico's economy improves, it is now seeing an increase in immigration from Central and South America. This will place a great burden on Mexico to better secure its southern border, and we are working through the Merida initiative to assist in not only technology applications, but operational planning and training to support President Peña Nieto's goals as well as those of the United States." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Michael McCaul, James Dinkins, John D. Feeley, Christopher Wilson, and Alan D. Bersin.
