This is the April 2, 2019 hearing on "Supporting a Fact-Based Approach to Preventing Terrorist Travel to the United States," held before the U.S. House Subcommittee on Intelligence and Counterterrorism and the Subcommittee on Border Security, Facilitation, and Operations. From the Opening Statement of Walker: "The security and the facilitation of people and goods crossing the U.S. borders is one of the fundamental responsibilities of the Government and a core mission set of the Department of Homeland Security, especially in the aftermath of the September 11 terror attacks. Since that time major enhancements have been made to the policies, to the technology and information-sharing agreements related to border vetting agreements and programs. Each time a vulnerability is discovered, such as the 2009 Christmas Day bomber, the 2011 arrest of two Iraqi refugees in Connecticut linked to al-Qaeda and the 2015 San Bernardino attack, with each one of these vulnerabilities additional improvements have and are continuing to be made." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Donald Conroy, Monte Hawkins, and Rebecca Gambler.
