This is the July 25, 2017 hearing on "Deter, Detect, and Interdict: Technology's Role in Securing the Border," held before the Subcommittee on Border and Maritime Security of the Committee on Homeland Security. From the opening statement of Martha McSally: "Border security is a complicated endeavor because there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Thinking through what it will take to secure the border is the primary responsibility of the three agencies represented by our witnesses today. Border Patrol is our operational force between the ports of entry. CBP's [Customs and Border Protection] Office of Field Operations' job is to facilitate legitimate trade and travel while keeping a list of drugs and people from entering our country illegally at the ports of entry. [...] Those who aim to exploit our border for illicit purposes. Destructing that process by leveraging technology will help Customs and Border Protection better use the allocated funding to secure the border in the long term. So today I want to take a hard look at the role that technology plays in helping to predict, deter, detect, and finally interdict the illicit activity so prevalent along the Southwest Border." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Todd C. Owen, Scott A. Luck, Dennis J. Michelini, and Rebecca Gambler.
