Bill Sponsorship: H.R.4482
Source: Southwest Border Security Threat Assessment Act
    This bill calls for a southwest border threat analysis that includes an assessment of:
  • terrorism and criminal threats posed by individuals and organized groups seeking to unlawfully enter the US through the southwest border
  • improvements needed at and between ports of entry along such border to prevent terrorists and instruments of terror from entering the US
  • gaps in law, policy, law enforcement, or international agreements that hinder effective and efficient border security, counterterrorism, anti-human smuggling and trafficking efforts, and the flow of legitimate trade along such border; and
  • the current percentage of situational awareness and of operational control of US borders achieved by DHS of the international land and maritime borders of the US.
  • The bill requires, every five years, a Border Patrol Strategic Plan that includes consideration of the southwest border threat analysis and an assessment of principal border security threats.
