U.S. Congressional Legislation: Border Security

A bill (S. 3243) designed to reduce corruption among border guards has been approved by the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. The Senate has not announced whether it will consider the bill.

Under the measure, all applicants for law enforcement positions with U.S. Customs and Border Protection would be required to pass a polygraph examination before being hired. All existing law enforcement personnel would undergo periodic background investigations while employed by the agency.
