In these remarks, Secretary Chertoff addresses the Secure Border Initiative and describes it as part of a comprehensive strategy to control illegal immigration. He describes the biggest accomplishments so far as the elimination of the catch-and-release policy, secondly there is a real market decrease in the number of non-Mexicans coming across the border illegally. All of this demonstrates a change in direction and momentum in border control.
