Border Security Events

On Wednesday, February 5, the Canada Institute hosted a discussion on the risks, challenges, and rewards of implementing a robust entry-exit system throughout North America.Comprehensive entry-exit tracking for non-citizens entering and leaving the United States has proven elusive. While non-citizens who enter the United States go through a variety of controls, little has been done to track non-citizens when they leave the country. Canada and the United States began working together recently to close the loop by counting entry into one country as an exit from the other. New legislation in Congress is being considered to add mandatory exit controls at all ports of entry.
