Rogers to serve on Border and Maritime Security Subcommittee

Congressman Mike Rogers, R-Saks, was selected to serve as a member of the Border and Maritime Security Subcommittee of the House Homeland Security Committee in addition to chairing the Transportation Security Subcommittee.

Rogers, who has represented Congressional District 3 since 2003, has served in a leadership position with the Homeland Security Committee since 2005. He is also a senior member of the House Armed Services Committee.

“Securing our borders, stopping the flow of illegal immigrants into our nation and protecting our vital ports like the ports of Mobile, Alabama, are critical to our nation’s security," Rogers said in a press release. "This subcommittee’s jurisdiction goes hand in hand with the issues I face as Chairman of Transportation Security Subcommittee. I am honored to serve on this subcommittee and look forward to working with the Border and Maritime Security Subcommittee Chairwoman Candice Miller (R-MI) and full Committee Chairman Peter King (R-NY) on these vital issues."

The Border and Maritime Security Subcommittee exercises oversight over the missions of Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the maritime security missions of the U.S. Coast Guard; Operational Control of the Border; Counter-Narcotics; Security Screening and Facilitation of International Travelers and Commerce; Supply Chain Security.
