  Daily NK - Time Bomb on the Korean Peninsula: North Korea-China Border
In 1992, the responsibility for border control and coastal defense was delegated from the National Security Agency to Border Control Command under the Ministry of the People’s Armed Forces.
Lee Chul Young (34), who used to be commander of a military district of Border Control and entered South Korea in 2004 says, “There are cavalry brigades and tank brigades under the Border Control Command, and the military force amounts to between 10~30 thousand soldiers.
Border Control Command shifts around the border guards at Pyongan, Yanggang and Hamkyung Provinces every two years in order to prevent frequent corruption of the soldiers.

Now the US Border patrol is trying a similar tactic as it attempts to keep Mexicans in their country.
Word spread quickly and apprehensions at the border went down considerably as people decided it'd better to be unemployed at home instead of another country.
So the US Border Patrol makes some TV and radio spots which are supposed to slow down if not stop illegal border crossings.

  Border Control - US Department of State
Although the U.S. Border Patrol arrests more than one million illegal border crossers each year, many of the aliens escape because they are released on their own recognizance due to insufficient space to hold them at detentions centers.
Tougher border controls in other states bordering Mexico have resulted in declining numbers of apprehensions, signifying, some believe, that fewer people are attempting to cross the border illegally.
Border Patrol agents found the group four hours later near the Mule Mountains, where they were treated for exhaustion and dehydration.

 Center for Immigration Studies
The appearance that the border was sieve-like contributed to the adoption — after several years of legislative effort — of the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA).
But INS and Border Patrol authorities readily acknowledge that the number of apprehensions does not equal the number of attempted entries, because the border control effort is less than totally effective.
Alternatively, Border Patrol efforts could be undermined by diversion of resources to a more pressing responsibility, would-be illegal alien entry attempts might then double, and the ratio of apprehensions to attempted entries could drop to 1:5 with only 800 apprehensions for each 4,000 attempted illegal entries.

 Border Control: Revised Strategy Is Showing Some Positive Result
The Border Patrol's mission is to maintain control of the international boundaries between the ports of entry by detecting and preventing smuggling and illegal entry of aliens into the United States.
Consequently, the study recommended (1) multiple lighted barriers in urban border areas to prevent the entry of large volumes of drugs and illegal aliens, with patrol roads between the barriers and (2) enhanced checkpoint operations to prevent those drugs and illegal aliens that succeeded in crossing the border from leaving the border area.
However, the study noted that as control was gained at the border, the number of agents could be allowed to decrease to a number not significantly larger than the 3,640 agents that were deployed along the southwest border when the study began in December 1991.

 Private Employers and Border Control
They have used unmanned drone airplanes with heat sensors and a communication capability to the agents on the border, and they found in an experi­ment done fairly recently that they caught every single heat-blip crossing that border that was big­ger than a rabbit.
Enforcement would become easier, and border control would become easier, because most of the people currently crossing illegally would not be there and because this provides powerful incen­tives for workers to become and remain legal.
If they have certainty of re-entry if they go home to apply or re‑apply, and that there will be fast turn­around and they can get back and continue with their jobs unless they have a criminal record, that is a big incentive for them.

 Border Control?
U.S. immigration policy has turned the Arizona desert between Tucson and the border into a nightmare zone of suffering, death, destruction and terrible ironies, and the people who live here are sick to death of it.
The Border Patrol's apprehensions between Oct. 1, 2003, and Sept. 30, 2004, in the Tucson sector totaled 491,771, or 1,347 per day, but the population of undocumented immigrants "has been growing robustly during most of the period of 'concentrated border enforcement'," according to the nonpartisan Migration Policy Institute.
The Border Patrol set up a "Special Operations" base over the ridge from the tiny settlement of Arivaca without informing inhabitants that 10 large trailers, 10 to 30 trucks, generators, stadium lights and night operations involving helicopters were about to become a feature of their lives for the foreseeable future.

 CHAPTER ONE: EARLY POST-WAR BORDER OPERATIONS 1945 - 1946
These initial border control stations often were manned by a noncommissioned officer and a few soldiers, and thus were easily circumvented by the hundreds of thousands of refugees and German soldiers passing into the US Zone in order to escape from the Soviet Zone and Czechoslovakia.
The Czechoslovak border was the scene of illegal crossings the Suedeten Germans being "encouraged" to immigrate to Germany.
Border police functions would be to enforce immigration and emigration laws and regulations, regulate travel across the international boundaries of Germany, assist customs officials in the prevention and detection of smuggling, and enforce any travel restrictions which might be imposed between the US Zone and other parts of Germany.

 NPR : San Diego Fence Provides Lessons in Border Control
And at Imperial Beach, which is split at the border by giant steel pillars sunk into the sand, a movie crew shoots what is billed as a “Spanish-language, science-fiction love story” with the fence as a backdrop...
Back then, Border Patrol agent Jim Henry says he was overwhelmed by the stream of immigrants who crossed into the United States illegally just in that sector.
The Border Patrol is moving forward with plans to add a second fence there as well as along the last 3.5 miles to the ocean, which had been held up by years of litigation over environmental concerns.

 People's Daily Online -- Hungary, Romania to introduce integrated border control
Hungary and Romania are soon to introduce an integrated, "one stop" control system for people crossing the common border, the Hungarian border control authorities announced on Tuesday.
The announcement followed talks between border control officials of the two countries on Monday, when they discussed technical details and authenticated the two governments' agreement on joint border control.
The Hungarian-Romanian border is crossed by millions of people every year, with the first 10 months in 2006 witnessing the movements of 13 million people.

 ACLU AND CRLAF FILE PETITION CHARGING THAT DEADLY U.S. BORDER ENFORCEMENT STRATEGY VIOLATES INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS ...   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The Border Patrol's blueprint for Gatekeeper itself says that the environment to which the migrant traffic was to be channeled — places where "the days are blazing hot and the nights freezing cold" — posed a "mortal danger" to illegal entrants.
Border Patrol detention figures show that although migrant apprehensions in the San Diego sector have fallen almost by half since 1994, the year Gatekeeper was initiated, the number of apprehensions along the entire California border has fallen by less than one percent between 1994 and 1998.
One reason for Gatekeeper's failure to reduce illegal migration, according to the petition, is that it fails to address a primary reason migrants seek to cross the border.

 Foreign Affairs - Beyond Border Control - Stephen E. Flynn   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The obvious solution to the challenge of filtering the bad from the good might seem to be increased funding for border controls.
Fortunately, there is an alternative to long queues and intrusive border inspections, but it requires creative thinking on the parts of the private sector, states, and international bodies.
First, rather than relying on a hodgepodge of controls at national borders, countries must tighten security within the international transportation and logistics system to reduce the risk that importers, exporters, freight forwarders, and transportation carriers will serve as conduits for criminals or terrorists.

 ParaPundit: Immigration Border Control Archives
Border Patrol senior agent Bob Riffle, who worked on the Mexican border for a decade before transferring to Washington state, said the two borders have different cultures and had high praise for his Canadian counterparts.
The U.S. Border Patrol must be increased to somewhere between 25-50,000 officers to adequately guard our southern border, with the final size determination dependent on proven field effectiveness of new technology and infrastructure such as fencing, lighting, UAVs, sensors, etc. Until the Border Patrol is fully staffed and equipped, military support will remain a necessity.
While those soldiers were deployed along the Mexican border the US government could fund construction of a border barrier that would gradually reduce the need for troops.

 Arizona Border Control Initiative and Adherence to Environmental Law   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The public centerpiece of the Initiative is the addition of 200 Border Patrol agents, assignment of four additional A-Star 350 helicopters, increased funding for sensor technology and unmanned aerial vehicles, and construction of seven new detention tents for apprehended migrants.
While such efforts have achieved greater control of the border in localized areas, the continued rise of overall immigrant levels overshadows any legitimate claims of Border Patrol success, especially in light of the mounting environmental damage and continuing and worsening human tragedy occurring throughout the borderlands.
With this letter, we thus formally request that the Border Patrol immediately undertake efforts to meet all applicable environmental laws, including NEPA and the ESA, in its implementation of the Arizona Border Control Initiative.

Perhaps he was accusing those who support border security and immigration control today of hypocrisy, since their ancestors may have once been invaders themselves.
By controlling our borders and setting immigration limits and qualifications we can avoid the fate of the Indians and keep from being swamped by future waves of immigrants.
But that doesn't mean they can't also subscribe to reasonable and practical immigration and border security policies for their secular government at home.

Two U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to a joint effort between the United States and Mexico to prosecute more smugglers were under arrest for allegedly releasing illegal immigrants from federal custody in exchange for $300,000 in cash bribes.
A proposal to nearly double the number of border patrol agents was backed Thursday by the Senate Judiciary Committee, but the panel set aside a House plan to build a 700-mile fence along the Texas-Mexico border.
Assaults against U.S. Border Patrol agents nearly doubled along the Mexican border in the last year as patrols cracking down on drug trafficking and migrant smuggling encountered increasing resistance, it was reported Monday.

 Border Patrol's 'progress' unclear   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Top U.S. Border Patrol officials say they've gained greater "operational control" along the Southwestern border, even as the number of arrests of undocumented immigrants has remained virtually unchanged in the past year and the death toll has broken all records.
While Bonner asserted that a recent drop in border arrests is a sign of success, it's difficult for the public to measure, in part because of the agency's refusal to disclose its internal gauges of effectiveness.
The Border Patrol keeps internal estimates for the number of undocumented immigrants believed to have slipped into the country on a daily basis, known as the "get-away ratio" but has declined repeated requests by The Arizona Republic and other media to disclose those numbers.

 Red State Patriot: Immigration and Border Control Archives
The refusal to build the fence, reducing National Guard presence at the border, and the termination of passport requirements between Mexico and Canada are small parts of the larger implementation of the North American Union.
The border wall is another understandable and desperate effort to manipulate the free market rather than deal with the dislocations that government alone, in both countries, has caused.
Since we failed in our attempts to deny Americans access to alcoholic beverages (control the behavior of others, to interfere with a free market), now we take away a persons privilege to drive a vehicle if they are found to have been impaired while in actual physical control of a vehicle.

Shadow home secretary David Davis said he had been calling for a border control force for some years, but was worried the plans were "window dressing".
He said: "This is not just about uniform, it's about powers and whether we use all the people: the immigration officers, the customs officers, and the special branch who currently work in the ports as a part of that force; or whether it is just about uniforms.
He added: "What is necessary is a properly constituted and powerful border control police making use of all possible manpower to maximum effect to protect our borders and with it public safety."

The policy to create a combined surveillance group is to fill up the holes by mutually watching amongst local government agencies.
