for Border and Transportation Security, Department of Homeland
Dobbs' "Tonight" -- CNN
-- July 1, 2004
Dobbs:Fifty members of congress, including House Majority
Leader Tom Delay, sent you a letter rather recently on June 24th,
talking about the Mobile Patrol Groups.
Hutchinson:" Well, the Mobile Patrol Groups of the
Border Patrol do interior check points, they also work in the
transportation hubs, responding to intelligence - it's very appropriate,
we support them tremendously, but we have in Homeland Security
a number of groups involved in interior enforcement , worksite
enforcement, which we're almost doubling the funding for that
program. We have detention and removal teams, we have fugitive
ops teams, so it's a matter of coordinating among those groups."
