Washington DC: U. S. Government Printing Office, 2006. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Wraps. iii, , 36 pages. In his testimony, Mike Cutler, former INS agent stated "The issue of aliens who enter our country through ports of entry having been inspected by CBP, who subsequently overstay or otherwise violate the terms of admission, is an issue that is often neglected if not totally overlooked. ... It is worth noting that the terrorists who attacked our nation on September 11, 2001 all entered our country through ports of entry. I have often made the point that any state that possesses an international airport or a seaport is, in fact, a border state. It is currently estimated that more than 40% of the illegal alien population currently present in the United States did not run our nation’s borders, but entered our country through a port of entry and then, in one way or another, violated the terms of their admission into the United States, whether by overstaying the authorized period for which they were admitted, accepting unauthorized employment or became involved in criminal activities and were found guilty of committing crimes within the United States. While this hearing is focused on visa overstays, we need to also consider the Visa Waiver Program that enables aliens from 26 countries plus Canada to apply for admission to the United States without first obtaining a visa for the United States.

Charles Alvin "Charlie" Beckwith (January 22, 1929 – June 13, 1994) was a career U.S. Army Special Forces officer best remembered for creating Delta Force, the premier asymmetrical warfare unit of the U.S. Army. He served in the Malayan Emergency and the Vietnam War, and attained the rank of colonel before his retirement. As the 7th SFG(A) operations officer, Beckwith went to work revolutionizing Green Beret training. Beckwith recognized that, "Before a Special Forces Green Beret soldier could become a good unconventional soldier, he'd first have to be a good conventional one."

Chalker is a retired Navy SEAL, inventor and author who has written about the Navy SEALs. Chalker initially served with SEAL Team One but was hand-selected by Commander Richard Marcinko to become a plankowner of the Navy's first dedicated counter-terrorist unit, SEAL Team Six.
