This testimony compilation is from the May 3, 2017 hearing, "Denying Terrorists Entry to the United States: Examining Visa Security," before the Subcommittee on Counterterrorism of the Committee on Homeland Security, United States House of Representatives. From the Committee on Homeland Security website: On September 29, 2015, the House Committee on Homeland Security released the findings of its bipartisan 'Task Force on Combatting Terrorist and Foreign Fighter Travel'. The task force provided over fifty recommendations for identifying and obstructing terrorist travel, some of which were enacted into law including the Visa Waiver Program Improvement and Terrorist Travel Prevention Act of 2015. The Committee has established a new bipartisan 'Task Force on Denying Terrorists Entry to the United States'. The main, though not exclusive, thrust of the task force will be a review of the Government's implementation of the Visa Waiver Program Improvement and Terrorist Travel Prevention Act to identify the progress made, the gaps that remain, and potential new gaps that have emerged within the Visa Waiver Program as we approach the two year anniversary of the passage of the legislation. This hearing is the first in a number of hearings and meetings to examine Visa Security and paths of entry into the United States." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Edward Ramotowski, John Wagner, Michael Dougherty, Clark E. Settles, and Rebecca Gambler.
