Article Cleanup[edit]

This article has multiple issues, and I've been working on cleaning it up over the weekend. I tackled the second part of the article, dealing with border security measures at ports, airports, and land borders. I cleaned up and clarified a lot of the language (i.e. changed 'United States southwestern' border to 'US-Mexico border'), added facts and connections between topics (especially in the airports section). While this article certainly reads like some type of essay, after close reading and editing I can see why the author thought this relevant to wikipedia, and (begrudgingly) agree that it should be here.

I will try my best to clean up this article and present more facts about the system surround the border security of the United States. If I get ambitious, I'll put in a section about the politics around border security and it's role in the immigration debate. Gee totes (talk) 17:01, 26 March 2011 (UTC)
