"[Sanford discussed] the Aadhaar Identity Program (biometrics) in India, in which 92% of India’s population partakes to streamline government services and transactions.... [She] also pointed to a critical ruling in the nation’s Supreme Court [and] said the ruling could have wide-ranging implications for the rest of the world. Specifically, it could affect companies who outsource to India."

"[Sanford] has a sound legal mind regarding international anti-money laundering and anti-terrorism matters.  She has a keen understanding of the practical aspects of law enforcement in the United States and various South American nations. Some of those countries have been mentioned publicly as potential weak links in the ongoing struggle against money laundering by organize crime and terrorists."

"The issues raised in [Sanford's] proposal are extremely relevant and important to U.S. and international financial institutions, and have potentially far-reaching implications. I believe [she] has highlighted the key issues regarding the international impact of the USA PATRIOT Act with a focus toward the fundamental target of the relevant body of U.S. anti-money laundering laws."
