The Border Challenge
An Insider's Guide to Stopping Drugs at America's Borders
This book presents an insider's view of the federal government's dual mission to stop the flow of illegal drugs across our borders and to prevent streams of drug money from financing drug cartels, insurgents, and terrorists. Andrews focuses on current challenges facing federal drug enforcement agencies, how our strategies for enforcement have been redirected since 9/11, and why we require different strategies along our northern and southern borders and our ports of entry. This guide's aim is to provide an operational view of drug enforcement to policymakers, law enforcement officials, think tanks examining drug interdiction issues, and military officials who assist federal law enforcement efforts. The Border Challenge will also be of interest to students of international development and social change and the next generation of criminal justice and law enforcement officials.
