This is the February 4, 2016 hearing on "Another Surge of Illegal Immigrants" held before the House Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security. From the opening statement of Trey Gowdy: "Once again, we are witnessing a crisis at our southwest border as thousands of unaccompanied minors and adults are coming to the United States. [...] This Administration claims these aliens are flooding our border to flee violence and poverty in their native countries and our government cannot do anything to stop it. However, based on their own intelligence reports, this Administration's policy of non-enforcement is, in fact, sparking the surge in the first instance. [...] We must at some point send a clear message to potential unlawful immigrants that discourage entry into our country. That would be in the best interests, frankly, of everyone." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Brandon Judd, Steven C. McCraw, Jessica M. Vaughan, and Wendy Young.
