"This testimony compilation is from the January 20, 2016 hearing on 'Biometric Exit Tracking System' held before the U.S. Senate Committee on the Judiciary, Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest. From the opening statement of Chuck Grassley: 'Congress has been abundantly clear. Yet, the most we have received from the Executive Branch is an insufficient report on overstays for certain travelers who enter the U.S. for business or tourism using biographical data. Late last night, the Department of Homeland Security provided a report to Congress on overstay rates for B visa holders [...] The report issued by the Department of Homeland Security is completely unsatisfactory. It fails to provide data to Congress on all visa classifications, including foreign students, those on employment based visas, fiancé visas, or those who participate in cultural exchange programs. While I appreciate the information the department provided, it only tells part of the story.' Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: John Wagner, Anh Duong, Craig C. Healy, and Rebecca Gambler."
