This article examines the Enhanced Border Security and Visa Entry Reform Bill that was introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives. Legislation to tighten up border security was certainly required after the terrorist attacks in the U.S. that took place last year. The bill consists of measures most people regard as necessary to strengthen America's security against terrorism. The measures include sharing information among intelligence agencies and tightening up the country's inadequate visa-screening practices.
