A bill (H.R. 915) that is designed to improve security along the U.S. border with Mexico, has been approved by the House. Homeland Security Committee. The House of Representatives has not announced whether it will take up the measure. The bill would require that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) establish a border enforcement security task force that would facilitate collaboration among federal, state, local, tribal, and foreign law enforcement agencies. These groups would share information and launch coordinated crime reduction activities.
