A closer Look at the Strive Act of 2007 and Border Security

Here is a closer look at the Strive Act of 2007

Some of the Better points of the proposed legislation:

Increased Border Enforcement Personnel:

Increase number of Border Agents by 2000 in in 2008 and 2400 each year through 2012, and assigning no less than 20% of the increase to the Northern Border. Other Agencies getting additional Personnel with this bill include Customs (200 Per Year) and Deputy US Marshals (50 Per Year).

Expanded Infrastructure:

Although the act mentions nothing specific about a wall or border fence it does provide for construction of new border entry points as well as repairs and improvements to existing entry points, and construction of additional vehicle barriers and border control facilities as deemed necessary to attain operational control of the international borders.  Also included is expanded and much needed communications improvements.

Improved Surveillance:

Provides for more access to DOD equipment such as UAV’s as well as provide for the acquisition of a DHS UAV fleet of its own as well as the operations and maintenance infrastructure that they require.  The proposed legislation also requires the DHS to develop a comprehensive plan for surveillance of the international land and maritime borders of the U.S.

As far as border security goes this bill is not bad at all. I don’t think anyone with any credibility could dispute the need for the measures included in this part of the bill. I will continue to hash my way through the proposed bill and look at some of the other aspects before I form my opinion it. From what I have read so far it is a good first step… I just hope that other parts of the bill are not two steps backwards.
