This is the July 28, 2021 hearing on "DHS's Efforts to Disrupt Transnational Criminal Organizations in Central America," held before the U.S. House Subcommittee on Oversight, Management, and Accountability of the Committee on Homeland Security. From the opening statement of Lou Correa: "Over the last few months, this subcommittee has had the opportunity to look closely at some of the factors that push people from Central America and Mexico to leave their homes and travel to the United States border. We have heard about crippling effects of the recent natural disasters, wide-spread poverty, COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019], as well as the pervasive presence of corruption which stifles progress, economic progress, and maintains inequality. Today, I look forward to diving more deeply into some of these issues the Department of Homeland Security is working on to combat both abroad and at home, primarily violence and instability caused by transnational criminal organizations." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Francis J. Russo and John A. Condon.
