The United States has borders with Canada in the northern region and Mexico in the southern region. Border enforcement policies and laws are in place with the intent to protect the United States against illegal entries across its borders and the possible unsafe activities that might be a result.
Cross-border enforcement is supposed to ensure that convicted criminals, terrorists and other bad elements do not enter the United States. However, many innocent persons get caught up in the process and need help in protecting their rights
How Enforcement is Done
The organization tasked with the purpose of protecting American borders is ICE or Immigration and Customs Enforcement which uses of state-of-the-art technology such as drones and motion sensors, plus old fashion techniques such as patrolling on horseback in its border enforcement.
The truth is, ICE has become more efficient under the current administration and arrests are up. The moment a border crosser is arrested all their information is entered into data making it all but impossible to try and reenter in the future.
The Connection of Cross Border Enforcement with International Family Laws
The two biggest concerns in the enforcement of international family laws are when international child abduction and international custody issues occur. When a parent takes their child or children from their home in the United States to escape its borders into another country the effects on the child and spouse can be devastating.
