Book Description:

After 9/11, U.S. border security priorities for land, sea, and air ports of entry were transformed, bringing a tidal wave of policy change. Yet, almost a decade after the pivotal terrorist attacks, is there solid proof that these measures have been effective, and are the purported benefits to our national security worth the financial and human costs?

Book Description ABC-CLIO. Hardcover. Condition: New. 381 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.1in. x 1.4in.The challenges facing U. S. Customs and Border Patrol are daunting. There are 19, 841 miles of American land and water boundaries to protect, and 95, 000 miles of shoreline and defined air space subject to homeland security surveillance. Additionally, the booming drug trade across the U. S. -Mexico border, combined with the ever-increasing number of migrants wanting to reach our land of opportunity, has resulted in a grim death toll: more than 5, 000 known migrant deaths have occurred along the U. S. -Mexico border during 19952008, and in 2009, an estimated 9, 635 Mexicans were killed in drug-related violence, with 2, 573 people killed in Ciudad Juarez alone. U. S. Border Security focuses on the contrast between border security before and after the 911 terrorist attacks. This text also examines the controversial topics of illegal immigration, counterterrorism, drug and weapons trafficking, human smuggling, the impact of border security on the movement of people and goods, and the effect of the war on terrorism on civil and human rights. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Seller Inventory # 9781598844078
