Immigration Department and Boarder Control

Handling of the unregistered aliens in the United States boarders

Borders delineate the sovereign territories of a national state and they serve as the entry points and exits through ports, in for all the goods, and human migration either entering or leaving the state. Stana (2005) says that  border protection remains a vital role of the central government in ensuring protection of the citizens through law protections and control of entry of substances and any other goods which may be considered illegal and dangerous if allowed in the particular state such as drugs, firearms and terrorism equipments (Krikorian, 2005). In the United States the government under the department of National Drug Control Policy and the Homeland Security affairs are mandated with the responsibilities of managing, controlling and protecting the National border.

There are challenges that are faced in the protection of the border and the administrators   are trying to cope up with them in order to control the high rates of illegal immigrants who are unregistered. According to Krikorian (2005), one of the challenges is inadequacy of enough border patrol personnel along the vast and long stretch border within the Gulf of Mexico region whereby two officers are assigned over an extensive region to guard and the aliens have been able to overcome them. The aliens entering the United States are using confiscated method to access the entry, whereby some have collaboration with the goods importing agents are hidden in the container goods (McDonald, 2009). Finklea, (2012) says that sophisticated technology is being used to confuse the border patrols and the used of forceful entry especially the drug smugglers who sometimes opens fire to the securities.

According to Jessica (2006), the employment opportunities promises in the Unites State which attracts the aliens in to the states, the government is controlling and preventing employment of the aliens whereby the 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) is being enforced with all means possible.Handling of the unregistered aliens in the United States boarders The employers should demand legal documents from the potential employees and if they are noted to be illegally within the country they are reported to the authorities (Stana, 2005).

The government through the Immigration Department and Boarder Control is trying to adopt an efficient method that will store the recorded information about the aliens and all the immigrants so that their activities and duration of stay within the country will be monitored thoroughly. According to Krikorian (2005), senators John McCain and Edward Kennedy, are working on a strategy that will help the security agencies in the borders that will help the to control the flow of the aliens to the united states by increasing the border patrols and monitoring the Drug Lords Closely who acts as the agencies of importing the aliens to the country. According to Finklea (2012), this will help to reduce the cost of deportation of the aliens especially from the Brazil and Mexico.

Stana (2005) says that there are various methods that can be adopted to control the flow of the illegal immigration in the United States in the future, one of them being improvement on the border protection by increasing the security personnel patrolling a specified part of the territory. The employment bureaus should be vetted and all the employees should be required to provide with the documents of citizenship in order to prevent the bureaus from attracting more aliens and control the employment of the aliens within the United States since the aliens are known to provide cheap labor (McDonald, 2009).

All the security personnel and the administrators should be aware of the new methods that are being used by aliens and the collaborating agents within the United States to make the aliens pass through the border. However the success of the measures that can be undertaken can only be realized if there is collaboration of the security agencies and administrators, the citizens and the government itself.
