Multiple News Organizations
July 29, 2002

In July, TRAC produced its second of three reports using monthly Department of Justice data. This report focuses on the Immigration and Naturalization Service and their enforcement and staffing practices since Sept. 11th. TRAC's Special Advisory illustrated the tremendous disparity between border agents on the northern and southern U.S. borders. Also, the Special Advisory reports seeming inconsistencies between rhetoric and action on the part of the Bush administration's Homeland Security group in their efforts to address the problem of northern border security.

The Special Advisory was picked up by a number of news organizations around the U.S. and Canada. Among the articles to appear in papers around the country were pieces by Julia Malone of Cox News Service, Diane Smith of Knight-Ridder, and Jon Bonné of MSNBC.
