GAO assesses DHS border security

Recently, the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a testimony on their assessment of the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) border security efforts along the U.S. southwest border.

The GAO testimony details DHS’s efforts to implement collaborative mechanisms along the southwest border and the department’s efforts to assess its use of resources and programs to secure the southwest border. The testimony draws on GAO’s reports and testimonies on DHS between 2013 and early 2017.

GAO reports that DHS and the U.S. Customs and Border Protection have implemented many mechanisms along the U.S. southwest border, but recommends improvement in the coordination of unmanned aerial systems. The testimony also reviews previous recommendations regarding information sharing and establishing written interagency agreements.
