Homeland Security Chief Tells of Plan to Stabilize Border

Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff has announced a plan to stabilize the border.
It includes surveillance cameras; fences; an improved deportation process that will ship illegal immigrants home instead of setting them free; adding more beds for detainees; tracking down illegal immigrants who fail to appear for deportation hearings; and adding more judges and lawyers to the process.
The plan includes mapping the entire Mexican border and determining how many illegal immigrants are accessing each of the entry routes across the border. The department's plan emphasizes increasing the speed of the deportation process and increasing the available space at detention centers so that illegal immigrants are not simply released before their proceedings.
