Q: Discuss how geography affects US border security
A: Border Security The role of the Department of Homeland Security is to prevent and investigate illegal movements across U.S. borders. The illegal movements include the smuggling of drugs, money, weapons, and human beings. The U.S. [ Coast Guard also aides in border patrol. In particular, U.S. Coast Guard is active in cases involving illegal entry of ships. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection
(CBP) also has an influential role in border control also. They aim at keeping terrorists and their weaponry from entering the U.S. Border Patrol aides the CBP in their functions. Areas That Are Frequently Impacted The U.S. border patrol authorities affect people's lives in many ways everyday. Some examples include the following. The U.S. border patrol authorities assist in limiting the amount of criminal activity, weaponry, and drugs that enter the United States. Border Patrol is responsible for stopping criminal activity at the border and before they set foot on U.S. ground. Border authorities employ scanning machines, canine unites, biometrics programs, as well as surveillance and questioning methods. Once border authorities find illegal items, they confiscate them at the border, keeping Americans safer. Next, border security officials reduce the amount of illegal immigration that is taking place. To accomplish this, border authorities maintain close surveillance of the borders. Because the United States spans vast borders both north and south, it is extremely difficult for border authorities to guard every part of the border. In addition, recent report by the Government Accountability Office indicates that the Canadian border is very high risk. The northern U.S. border has many loopholes, which authorities fear will be taken advantage of by terrorists and illegal immigrants. Third, there are dangers associated. Although illegal immigration has been an ongoing phenomenon in the United States for decades, there is more violence and danger associated today. The southern U.S. border often serves as an entry point for members of drug cartels. Due to the Mexican Drug War, many incidences of violence have been carried across borders through drug smuggling. ]
