Programs expand along southern border

AP Wire | 09/15/2005 | Programs expand along southern border: "More U.S. Border Patrol agents and expanded authority for officials to deport certain illegal immigrants in a more timely manner will help ease pressures along the southern border, congressional representatives from New Mexico and Texas said.

Expedited removal authority will be expanded from three Border Patrol sectors to the entire U.S.-Mexico border. Expedited removal allows trained agents to speed up the repatriation of adult illegal immigrants who are caught within 100 miles of the Southwest border and who have been in the United States less than 14 days."
