Chairman McCaul, Ranking Member Keating, Members of the Committee: Thank you for the opportunity to testify today on behalf of the Congressional Research Service. My statement draws on a new report that I am coauthoring with my CRS colleagues Jerome Bjelopera and Kristin Finklea; and I want to thank them and acknowledge their role, along with several other colleagues at CRS, in preparing this statement.
Pursuant to the Committee’s request, my statement today will consist of three parts. First, I will discuss key threats to U.S. borders. Second, I will describe selected threat scenarios. Third, I will discuss some policy options Members of Congress may consider with respect to border security in the next four years and beyond.
