Dole and Miller demand proof of border security
|Macomb Daily -- Mount Stevens, Mich. -- February 22
Miller still pursuing tougher border security
As the top lawmaker in the House on border issues, Rep. Candice Miller is challenging Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano's claim that U.S.-Mexican border security has "never been stronger" and the congresswoman questions whether immigration reform should proceed before more effective measurements of border protection are established.
Miller will be holding a session of her Subcommittee on Border and Maritime Security on Tuesday to question officials from the Department of Homeland Security and Customs and Border Protection.
"What I've said is that we need to concentrate on metrics. We've been focusing on resources but how do we measure success?" said Miller, a Harrison Township Republican who chairs the subcommittee. "My real question, and this is the title of my hearing on Tuesday, what does a secure border look like?"

The GAO's Rebecca Gambler will be a witness at the Miller hearing. On January 30, Glenn Spencer personally handed a copy of "How to Solve the Border Problem" to Gambler.
She also got information on IDENTISEIS®, the technology that can count everyone crossing the border.
