REP. MICHAEL McCAUL, CHAIRMAN: "When counterfeit prescription drugs enter the marketplace or cheap imitation parts breach a semiconductor manufacturing plant, it costs American businesses revenue and jobs. When sensitive equipment falls into the hands of rogue nations, it poses a threat to our national security. It is the responsibility of the Department of Homeland Security to protect intellectual property, safeguard against counterfeit goods, maintain the integrity of export supply chains, and to ensure that businesses are in compliance with our immigration laws in order to maintain a level playing field. The private sector will testify to the effectiveness of DHS' current enforcement measures and their impact on the bottom line of our nation's job creators."
