Oversight Hearing on DHS Law Enforcement Efforts

Thursday, February 05, 2004
On February 3, 2004, the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security of the House Committee on the Judiciary conducted an Oversight Hearing on Law Enforcement Efforts within the Department of Homeland Security. Chairman Howard Coble (R-NC) stated that the purpose of the hearing was to examine how the transfer of law enforcement agencies to the new Department has affected the non-terrorism missions of those agencies. Mr. W. Ralph Basham, Director, U.S. Secret Service, testified about how the agency’s traditional missions have merged with the new anti-terrorism mission. Admiral Thomas H. Collins, Commandant, U.S. Coast Guard, testified that the Coast Guard has always been a multi-mission organization and is adept at balancing competing priorities and creating synergies. Michael Garcia, Assistant Secretary, Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, testified about the integration of agents from the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), the Customs Service, the Federal Protective Service, and the Federal Air Marshals.
