Border Security: Inspections Practices, Policies, and Issues

Border Security: Inspections Practices, Policies, and Issues

Date: May 26, 2004
Creator: Wasem, Ruth Ellen; Lake, Jennifer E; Seghetti, Lisa M; Monke, James & Viña, Stephen R
Description: Some argue that this reorganization of border inspections has been long needed and is resulting in a more streamlined and efficient set of procedures at the border with a clear, single, chain of command. Others warn that the different types of inspections are quite complex in their own right and that the reorganization is exacerbating the conflicting priorities at the border, ultimately resulting in many more people and goods being sent to secondary inspections. This report, which will not be updated, discusses a range of legal, administrative, and policy issues that are emerging with the implementation of the unified border inspections.
