Watching for terrorists on the US - Canadian border

Two years ago, I did a post about the admission of terrorists into Canada and the porous border between Canada and the United States. My big fear from this is that these people then show up at Ben Gurion Airport with American passports and expect to be admitted into Israel - and are sometimes backed up by the US State Department. But there's also the fear that terrorists admitted to Canada will steal across the border into the US and perpetrate terror attacks.

This video is a BBC report on the ways in which the border patrol on the US side of the border is trying to keep the US safe. Some of this technology may come from Israel's 'security fence.' Is it effective? Not 100%.

Let's go to the videotape.
