Jack Ryan on Immigration


Vigilance at the borders-more INS agents

I will back legislation providing effective border security. We must be as vigilant in keeping those out who wish to do us harm. The president's fiscal 2003 budget would pay for 1,730 more INS agents and 800 more Customs agents, but this is only a first step - Customs is only able to do any sort of check on less than 2 percent of the trucks and containers pouring into the country, and this statistic concerns me greatly.
