INS Sloppiness

Reader comment on item: [Hesham Hedayet and] Border Agencies in Denial

Submitted by Alec Bobrow (United States), Oct 16, 2002 at 10:07

Perhaps this article was written prior to the discovery of 4 month old corpses in a boxcar from Mexico. Apparently, smugglers lock the cars in Mexico to induce INS inspectors to leave the cars alone when they cross the border. The stunning thing about this simple idea (like the basis of the September 11 attacks) is that it appears to work. I guess that common sense is not so common in the INS.
