Border Security Problems
(2007-09-27)
(wgvu) - Government investigators say a smuggler could
easily carry radioactive material or other contraband into the
United States from Canada.
The Government Accountability Office sent investigators to test
how easily they could transfer large red duffel bags at unguarded,
unmonitored spots along the 5,000-mile-plus border.
The investigators tested four northern border states, which they
did not identify.
At one site, they set up an exchange of a red duffel bag from
one side of the border to another. An alert citizen notified border
officials, but authorities called to the scene couldn't find the
GAO investigators.
It's illegal to cross the border at any place other than an
official port of entry.
