[Editor’s note: John Morton, the Director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, delivered the following statement on Oct. 12, 2011 before the House Committee on the Judiciary, Subcommittee on Immigration Policy and Enforcement, at a hearing entitled, "Oversight Hearing on U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement: Priorities and the Rule of Law."]

Introduction

In the 2010 Quadrennial Review of Homeland Security, the department identified an objective regarding individuals and families. Specifically, it addressed the reduction of vulnerabilities and the enhancement of resources in order to minimize impact and fallout from attacks and disasters.

The reason seems to be obvious. However, this is not usually the approach of homeland security.  The practice of homeland security, to this day, has been a top-down approach, yet, if the system fails, it is the citizen or local responder left to deal with the fallout.
