Abstract:

All persons who legally enter the United States must do so through a designated port of entry POE. The Immigration and Naturalization Services INS Inspections Program is charged with inspecting all travelers at POEs to ensure that they may enter the United States. Typically, inspections at air POEs consist of a primary inspection, the focus of this audit, and, when required, a secondary inspection. These inspections are critically important in protecting the nations borders from terrorists, illegal entries, alien smugglers, and other illegal activities. The objective of this audit was to evaluate the INSs procedures for referring persons to secondary inspection, including critical associated functions relating to analyses of advance passenger information, availability of needed law enforcement information, and inspector training.
