Welcome to the Democratic website of the House Committee on Homeland Security. This website will provide you with a range of resources, including our priorities, reports, news and other pertinent information throughout the year. The website will also serve as a portal for updates on our Membership, hearings, markups, and legislation.

This Congress we will continue our work to secure the nationís critical infrastructure, our borders and our ports. We will continue to improve the nationís ability to prepare for and respond to any disasters we may encounter by ensuring that our first responders have the training, tools and guidance they need to do their jobs. In addition, as a Committee tasked with the responsibility to oversee the Department of Homeland Security we will continue to ensure that each agency within the Department is running smoothly and efficiently. Improving the governance and accountability of the Department of Homeland Security is our main objective.
