This is the October 24, 2017 hearing on "Nomination of Kevin K. McAleenan," held before the U.S. Senate Committee on Finance. From the opening statement of Orrin G. Hatch: "First, we will have a hearing to consider the nomination of Kevin McAleenan to serve as Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection or CBP. In addition, if a quorum is present at any point during the hearing, we will move to executive session to consider and hopefully report three pending trade-related nominations. [...] CBP is the United States' unified border agency, charged with facilitating legitimate trade and travel, while enforcing U.S. trade laws and securing our borders. There is a great deal of work to be done to improve enforcement, but this mission should not come at the expense of legitimate trade and travel. Striking the right balance is vital to ensuring that the United States remains competitive with the rest of the world. Balancing facilitation and security will require CBP to work with stakeholders in and out of the government." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record by Mazie K. Hirono.
