I congratulate Barbara Mikulski for her years of outstanding service to our Nation. Her retirement from public life is well earned, though I will miss her in the Senate. In word and deed, Senator Mikulski has been a real champion of the men and women of the Department of Homeland Security. Last summer, during the spike in migration of children on our southern border, Senator Mikulski asked to travel with me to south Texas. Though she was chair of the Senate Appropriations Committee then, she wanted no press or fanfare for her visit; she simply wanted to see the problem. While there, Barbara visited with the children, and also gave our men and women on the border a pat on the back for their heroic work.

Cybersecurity is one of our critical homeland security priorities. We welcome the President’s announcement today on the creation of the Cyber Threat Intelligence Integration Center (CTIIC). This center will ensure an integrated intelligence community view of cyber threats and ensure that intelligence information is shared with all U.S. agencies responsible for cybersecurity and network defense.
