Statement by Secretary Johnson Concerning Airport Security

The recent active shooter event at Fort Lauderdale International Airport, and the response to mistaken reports of an active shooter event at JFK Airport in August 2016, highlight the need for Airport Operations Centers, staffed by airport operators and security, local law enforcement, the airlines, as well as TSA and CBP, to manage security, incident response, as well as day-to-day airport operations. 

Statement by Secretary Johnson on Congressional Support for Preclearance Expansion with Canada

I applaud Congress for passing the Promoting Travel, Commerce, and National Security Act of 2016 on December 10.  This legislation enables us to implement the critical 2015 United States and Canada Agreement on Land, Rail, Marine, and Air Transport Preclearance (LRMA). Once Canada takes action and the agreement enters into force, the LRMA will strengthen the security of our homeland while facilitating legitimate cross-border travel.
