ABSTRACT

Southwest Border Security: Actions Are Needed to Address the Cost and Readiness Implications of Continued DOD Support to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Report to Congressional Requesters   [open pdf - 4MB]

From the Highlights: "For decades, the U.S. southwest border has been vulnerable to cross-border illegal activity such as illegal entries, smuggling of drugs and contraband, and terrorist activities. Since 2002, DOD has supported DHS's mission to secure the nation's borders and episodically supported its efforts to manage surges in foreign nationals without valid travel documents who are seeking entry-- most recently since April 2018, when the President directed the Secretary of Defense to support DHS in securing the southwest border."
