"I believe the Secure Communities program is an important tool to help ensure that known terrorists and criminals who have entered the United States illegally or overstayed their visas are unable to remain in the country."

The hearing featured testimony from Janet Napolitano, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, who, among other topics, discussed measures taken by the FBI, Department of Homeland Security, and the National Counterterrorism Center since Sept.11 to combat terrorism at home and abroad.
