The Bush Administration’s border enforcement efforts were strengthened today with the announcement of twenty new Assistant U.S. Attorneys for the four southern border states.  These twenty new U.S. Attorneys will work exclusively on immigration matters such as alien smuggling, human trafficking, alien gun possession, illegal entry and re-entry, unauthorized employment, and document fraud.  Five additional new U.S. Attorneys will focus on narcotics smuggling across the southern border.
