This document is the June 11, 2014 hearing titled "Oversight of the Department of Homeland Security" before the Senate Committee on the Judiciary. From the opening statement of Patrick J. Leahy: "[O]ne year ago, this Committee came together after weeks of exhaustive deliberations. We met all day, way into the evening, day after day, and we passed bipartisan legislation to fix the broken immigration system. We then had major debate on it on the floor of the Senate, and we passed it in the Senate with a bipartisan majority. It would unite families, certainly spur the economy--as everybody from Grover Norquist on said, it would give a huge boost to our economy--and it would help protect our borders. We knew last year that the cost of inaction was too great, and Members of this Committee and the full Senate passed historic legislation that would create a system worthy of American values. Unfortunately, the House leadership refused to act. [...] Every day the House fails to act is another day that families are torn apart and our economy lags. Every day the House fails to act, we realize the human cost of doing nothing to fix our broken immigration system." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Jeh Johnson.
