Hearing To Be Held by House Judiciary Committee Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security on September 19, 2011
WASHINGTON, Sept. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, announced today that its client, Tiffany Hartley will testify on September 19, 2011, before a congressional field hearing on border issues held by the House Judiciary Committee Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security. (A "field hearing" is an official congressional hearing held outside of Washington, DC.) Mrs. Hartley's husband, David, was believed to have been murdered by Mexican drug pirates on September 30, 2010, on Falcon Lake, a tourist destination on the border between Texas and Mexico.
The following are details regarding the hearing, which is open to the public:
Congressional Field Hearing on Border Issues
House Judiciary Committee Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security
September 19, 2011
10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
(Mrs. Hartley's testimony 10-10:45 a.m.)
The Arts Center at the University of Texas, Brownsville

Members scheduled to attend include: Rep. Ted Poe (R-TX), Rep. James Sensenbrenner (R-WI), and Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-TX).
Nearly one year after Mr. Hartley's murder, his body has yet to be recovered and the federal government has ended its active participation in any investigation of the crime. Judicial Watch has called on the Mexican government and the Obama administration to thoroughly investigate Mr. Hartley's murder, while launching its own investigation.
On September 16, Judicial Watch filed Freedom of Information Act lawsuits against the Department of State, Department of Justice and the FBI to obtain all government records pertaining to the September shooting, including Obama administration communications with their Mexican law enforcement officials, military authorities, and other Mexican officials.
Mrs. Hartley and Judicial Watch also participated in a May 12, 2011, Washington, DC press conference hosted by Congressman Poe to bring attention to the investigation of David Hartley's murder.
Governor Rick Perry (R-TX), Governor John Hickenlooper (D-CO), Rep. Cory Gardner (R-CO), Senators Mark Udall (D-CO) and Michael Bennett (D-CO) have joined the bipartisan campaign to get the truth behind Mr. Hartley's murder.
