Terrorist Checks Fail on US Borders #637-2

637-2 JuliaProgram Preview:



Segment 2: Julia Davis, a former U.S. Customs and Border Protection Officer, and her husband, producer BJ Davis, tell the harrowing story that began on the Fourth of July, 2004 when she followed the rules of her job, and reported 23 people from terrorist countries crossing the border into the U.S, leading to her being targeted as a whistleblower by the Department of Homeland Security. BJ Davis said he thought Julia had done her job and followed protocol in reporting the event to the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force, potentially foiling a terrorist plot. Julia explains that typically there are five to 15 people a month crossing the border, but this was 23 in one day.  She said no one questioned them, fingerprinted them, and her report was closed the same day without any action taken. Julia describes the San Ysidro port as being the biggest, busiest in the world, and details the arrest of a port director for taking bribes, yet only faced probation. She discusses the National System for Entry Access Registration (NSEARS) being canceled after her report, describing the process as “Security Theater.”
