Subcommittee Chairman Candice Miller on the hearing (R-MI): "Since 9/11, the U.S. has made great strides in its passport screening procedures by screening against terror and watch lists, immigration databases and records of lost or stolen passports. Unfortunately, not all countries have such robust procedures, putting Americans traveling internationally at risk. Tomorrow, we will hear from U.S. and international security agencies about additional measures to improve international screening procedures."
