Ex-FEMA Head Notes Lack Of Border Security

September 23, 2011 by  

Michelle Bachmann and fellow Republicans have denounced the programs in certain border States that allow in-State tuition for illegal immigrants, noting that this gives an incentive for these individuals to enter the country.The former director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Joe M. Allbaugh, noted that the U.S. needs to do a better job securing the border with Mexico, according to The Washington Times.

Illegal immigration efforts need to increase by a significant margin if the U.S. wants to control what is being shipped across the borders on a daily basis.

“The southern border is porous, and we need to shut it down if we hope to get ahead of the problems that illegal immigration brings,” Allbaugh told the Times. “Less than 5 percent of the 125,000 containers coming into this country each day are ever inspected.”

Allbaugh noted that the White House and the next President of the U.S. need to be vigilant in protecting the nation’s borders. He explained that new policies need to be enacted to prevent a flow of illegal immigration and drugs from entering the country, reported the newspaper.
