This is the April 26, 2018 hearing on Mass Migration in Europe: Assimilation, Integration, and Security, held before the Before the Subcommittee on Europe, Eurasia, and Emerging Threats of the Committee on Foreign Affairs, of the United States House of Representatives. From the opening statement of the Hon. Dana Rohrabacher: "The subcommittee's topic for this afternoon is mass migration in Europe, its history, the current reality, the consequences of migration and what those consequences mean to the transatlantic relationship. Let me say that from the start what this hearing is not and it is not and cannot simply be a discussion of recent Syrian refugees going, pouring into Europe. Yes, that is part of the discussion, but it is only one part of the discussion. This is a big topic, one with a history which stretches back decades and in terms of migration perhaps even centuries. We cannot do justice to the issue or the lives of all the people affected without being respectful of the history of what we are talking about today. [...] However, this hearing will shed some light on constructive ways that we can approach the challenges that we are talking about." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Robin Simcox, Marta Vrbetic, Victor Davis Hanson, and Wa'el Alzayat.
