The Department of Homeland Security appropriations bill, signed into law (P.L. 109-90) by President Bush in October, contains $940 million for border security initiatives, including 1,500 new border patrol agents and expanded detention capacity.
A federal appeals court has ruled that border agents must establish reasonable suspicion before conducting a forensic search of electronic devices seized at border crossings.
Efforts to secure the border need more than an influx of cash; they require clear definitions and reliable metrics.
