Subcommittee on Oversight, Investigations, and Management, Committee on Homeland Security
WHEN: Wednesday, May 11, 10 a.m.
WHERE: 311 Cannon House Office Building
WITNESSES: Grayling Williams, Director, Office of Counter Narcotics Enforcement, Department of Homeland Security; Amy Pope, Deputy Chief of Staff and Counselor to the Assistant Attorney General Criminal Division, Department of Justice; Col. Steven McCraw, Director, Texas Department of Public Safety; Tom Horne, Attorney General, State of Arizona; Sigifredo Gonzalez, Sheriff, Zapata County, Texas.
CHAIRMAN McCAUL: "This administration is not giving the American people a complete picture of security on our border with Mexico. It is not `better now than it has ever been' and the data on spillover crimes and violence is deceiving and underreported. Our state and local law enforcement on the front lines need help. Their firsthand accounts tell the real story of how we are outmanned, overpowered, and in danger of losing control of our own communities to narco-terrorists."
