Thompson: "Today, the Committee on Homeland Security is meeting for its annual hearing on 'World-wide Threats to the Homeland.' Our Nation recently observed the 19th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Nearly 2 decades later, we continue to mourn the nearly 3,000 lives lost that terrible day and keep their loved ones in our prayers. [...] Nineteen years after the attacks of 9/11, we continue to face grave threats to the homeland, including the rise of domestic terrorism, on-going foreign interference in the 2020 elections, and a coronavirus pandemic that has claimed nearly 200,000 American lives. [...] Americans who care about securing the homeland and upholding our most sacred values expect their representatives to hold the Department of Homeland Security and this administration accountable. Be assured that, under my Chairmanship, I will not waiver in my commitment to doing so today or in the future." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Christopher A. Wray, Christopher Miller.
