U.S. Senator John Cornyn will chair the Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Immigration, Border Security and Citizenship. The subcommittee has jurisdiction over immigration, citizenship, and refugee laws, and oversight of the immigration-related functions of the Department of Homeland Security.

Cornyn, author of the Border Security and Immigration Reform Act of 2003, said “We must address the need for better border security, and combat human smuggling and other exploitation, while acknowledging the important contributions that immigrants make to our economy.”

The Judiciary Committee will ratify Cornyn’s and other committee chairmanships and assignments during an upcoming meeting of the full committee. Cornyn chaired the Constitution, Civil Rights and Property Rights subcommittee in the 108th Congress, and served on these subcommittees: Immigration, Border Security and Citizenship; Administrative Oversight and the Courts; and Crime, Corrections and Victims’ Rights.

Chairman Cornyn’s subcommittee has jurisdiction over immigration, citizenship, and refugee laws and oversight of the immigration-related functions of the Department of Homeland Security, including the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service, the immigration functions of the United States Customs and Border Protection, the United States Immigration and Custom Enforcement and the Directorate of Border and Transportation Security.

The subcommittee’s oversight jurisdiction also includes the immigration-related functions of the Department of Justice, the Department of State, the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Refugee Resettlement, and the Department of Labor, and international migration and refugee laws and policy.
