The U.S. and Canada share a border that extends nearly 4,000 miles, and one of the worldżs largest trading relationships. Border congestion and the resulting wait times have a substantial economic impact on both nations. Furthermore, the heightened emphasis on border security since 9/11 has lengthened time for travelers and cargo crossing into the U.S. From 2005 to 2007, the U.S. and Canada were engaged in negotiations to implement land pre-clearance at ports of entry. But, in April 2007, these negotiations were officially terminated. This report addresses the following questions: (1) What ne

In Nov. 2005, the Dept. of Homeland Security established the Secure Border Initiative (SBI), a multiyear, multibillion-dollar program to secure U.S. borders.
