3/19-21 Washington D.C.: Outrageous Militarization of the border conference
Released 15 February 2007  By Lee Siu Hin - National Immigrant Solidarity Network

3/19-21 Washington D.C.: Outrageous Militarization of the border conference


Here's a so-called Secure Border Initiative conference will be happened in Washington D.C. at March 19-21, organized by National Defense Industrial Association--a military industry trade association, to promote more $$$ for the weapons.

I am outrages that the theme of the conference is: "to develop, strengthen and affirm our current and future directions and partnerships for Homeland Security’s mission to secure America’s borders and reduce illegal immigration." and also to discuss more money for the militarization of the border.

We should take action to response the conference.

2007 Homeland Security Symposium and Exposition

The Secure Border Initiative (SBI): Challenges-Opportunities-Solutions
The Continuum of Border Security

March 19-21, 2007
Hyatt Regency, Crystal City, Arlington, VA

Organized by: National Defense Industrial Association

SBI: Challenges-Opportunities-Solutions
The Continuum of Border Security

This National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) Homeland Security Secure Border Initiative Symposium provides a forum for government and industry stakeholders to develop, strengthen and affirm our current and future directions and partnerships for Homeland Security’s mission to secure America’s borders and reduce illegal immigration.

The theme of this year’s symposium is “SBI: Challenges—Opportunities—Solutions, The Continuum of Border Security.” This symposium provides the opportunity to hear prominent officials give their views on the emerging issues related to securing the borders and how strong commitment to partnerships between government and industry, and between government agencies, can successfully address current and future challenges.

Members of Congress, and representatives from the Office of the Secretary of Homeland Security and the Secure Border Initiative Program Office and industry experts will discuss their visions and challenges in providing innovative solutions for evolving homeland security priorities.

Developing and strengthening relationships between government and industry is needed to ensure a comprehensive unified effort against cross-border and transnational threats to Homeland security, public safety and the U.S. economy while facilitating legitimate trade and travel that enhance quality of life.

The transformation taking place in Homeland Security calls for a new culture among departmental components and the industry that supports them to maximize collaboration across the full spectrum of border security initiatives that begin far outside U.S. borders, occur at the border, and continue to all regions of the United States.

These significant organizational changes make this an especially crucial time to address our collective way ahead. SBI, as the coordination mechanism to integrate Department components, has become the focal point for collaborating with federal, state, local, tribal, and international partners, as well as the private sector. In moving from the “need to know” paradigm of intelligence and information access to a “need to share” model, SBI emerges to facilitate the free flow of information between the Department and its outside partners thus laying a foundation for a robust U.S. border security industry. This symposium is intended to be an important venue for government and industry senior leaders to better partner for success in the future.
