Rep. Tierney is the ranking Democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform's Subcommittee on National Security, Homeland Defense and Foreign Operations. He also sits on the House Committee on Education and Workforce.

"The work that American Science and Engineering, Inc. does right here in Billerica is an excellent example of the cutting-edge research and development and state-of-the-art manufacturing flourishing in Massachusetts. I enjoyed meeting with leaders at AS&E to discuss border security technology and solutions," said Congressman John Tierney.

During the visit today, AS&E's President and CEO, Chuck Dougherty, emphasized the need for Congress to assure border entry points are fully secured to defeat illegal entry of persons as well as contraband that includes radiological materials and narcotics. Dougherty and Rep. Tierney also discussed the importance of the passage of comprehensive immigration reform legislation, and how it is critical to the nation's security and economic prosperity.
