Thailand should be ready to facilitate immigration processes at major checkpoints, such as Nong Khai's border control near Vientiane and the Huai Kon border control in Nan, which can connect to Luang Prabang.
Currently, the Vehicle Theft Task Force is organized into four operational squads, consisting of 19 detectives from 11 different agencies, located in the Phoenix and Tucson metropolitan areas, Yuma and Nogales. While the task force has seen a reduction of personnel, it has become more efficient in recovering stolen vehicles and apprehending suspects responsible for vehicle theft.
The Vehicle Theft Task Force has influenced vehicle theft rates and is regarded as subject matter experts in the field of auto theft, especially as it relates to fraud and organized crime. In 2019, the Vehicle Theft Task Force recovered 1,635 stolen vehicles (136 were repatriated stolen vehicles from Mexico) with an estimated value of more than $23.7 million. Focused on apprehending prolific offenders rather than just recovering the stolen vehicle, the Vehicle Theft Task Force apprehended 306 suspects for vehicle theft-related crimes, shut down 15 chop shops, and served 45 search warrants. Recognized as subject matter experts in the field of auto theft, detectives provided more than 550 training hours in auto theft investigations and vehicle identification techniques to law enforcement personnel, county attorneys and to Mexican law enforcement personnel. The Vehicle Theft Task Force also devoted more than 3250 hours on border relations, border investigations, and transnational crime investigations.
4. Tracking System - Install a tracking device that alerts police or a monitoring service when the vehicle is stolen. Tracking devices are very useful in helping law enforcement authorities recover stolen vehicles.
Being prepared in advance may ultimately help law enforcement recover your vehicle more quickly and reduce your expenses. Take pictures of your vehicle, vehicle registration, and proof of insurance and keep them on your phone. If you can, make photocopies and keep a set in your wallet/purse or at home. This will enable you to provide information quickly to law enforcement and your insurance claims agent. If your car is stolen, please take the following steps:
The administration on Monday indefinitely extended the public health order, known as Title 42, that allows border agents to immediately expel migrants caught crossing the border illegally, depriving them of the right to seek asylum in the U.S.
Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, issued a new order, citing the spread of the COVID-19 delta variant, the increase in migrant apprehensions at the border and limited capacity of Customs and Border Patrol facilities.
The order was issued in March 2020 under former President Donald Trump, with the nominal justification of preventing the spread of the coronavirus. It allows border agents to immediately expel migrants caught crossing the border instead of processing them as normal. CDC experts were initially resistant to issuing the order and only did so after pressure from the Trump administration, which made restrictive immigration policies a key part of its agenda.
Biden kept the policy in place for migrant families and single adults, though he formally exempted unaccompanied children from the order. The government has also been forced to admit more and more migrant families into the interior of the U.S. because Mexico has in some places refused to accept back expelled family units.
Title 42 flies in the face of recommendations from the United Nations and is out of step with practices from other countries. More than 20 European countries included explicit exemptions for asylum-seekers from entry bans and border closures, according to the U.N., and the European Union as a whole excluded people seeking international protection from travel restrictions during the pandemic.
In May, the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees issued a rare rebuke of U.S. border policy, urging the U.S. to end Title 42 expulsions and noting that "many countries put in place protocols such as health screening, testing and quarantine measures, to simultaneously protect both public health and the right to seek asylum."
Stolen motor vehicles, vessels and works of art are likely to be trafficked across borders. Our global databases assist the law enforcement community in identifying stolen items and increase the chance of their recovery.
The INTERPOL Firearms Reference Table is an interactive online tool that provides a standardized methodology to identify and describe firearms more accurately so they can then be traced in cross-border investigations.
The INTERPOL illicit Arms Records and tracing Management System (iARMS) is the only global law enforcement platform to support the transnational tracing of illicit, lost or stolen firearms. It improves information exchange and cooperation between law enforcement agencies on terrorism and other firearm-related crimes.
The INTERPOL Ballistic Information Network (IBIN) is the only large-scale international ballistics data sharing network in the world. It provides intelligence to law enforcement agencies through the centralized storage and cross-comparison of ballistics imaging in order to find connections between crimes from different countries that might otherwise remain undetected.
From 1 January 2023, checks on persons at internal land and sea borders between Croatia and the other countries in the Schengen area will be lifted. Checks at internal air borders will be lifted from 26 March 2023, given the need for this to coincide with the dates of IATA summer/winter time schedule.
Since its accession to the EU, Croatia has applied parts of the Schengen acquis, including those related to the external border controls, police cooperation and the use of the Schengen Information System.
The remaining parts of the Schengen acquis, which include the lifting of controls at internal borders and related measures, can only become applicable following a unanimous decision by the Council after it has been verified, in accordance with the applicable Schengen evaluation procedures, that they fulfil the necessary conditions. In December 2021, the Council concluded that the necessary conditions were fulfilled by Croatia.
The Trump administration is facing a torrent of criticism Monday after it unexpectedly announced a full U.S. troop withdrawal from northern Syria to effectively allow a long-planned military operation by Turkey against Kurdish ground forces, who had battled to uproot ISIS.
"Turkey will soon be moving forward with its long-planned operation into Northern Syria," a White House statement late Sunday said, noting that President Donald Trump had spoken to his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan by phone. "The United States Armed Forces will not support or be involved in the operation, and United States forces, having defeated the ISIS territorial 'Caliphate,' will no longer be in the immediate area."
Security experts on the region and former U.S. officials are calling the decision harmful and a gift to America's adversaries, while some members of the Kurdish forces on the ground in Syria are calling it betrayal.
McGurk resigned from his position in December after Trump's shock announcement that the U.S. would withdraw all its forces from Syria, a move that meant abandoning U.S.-allied Kurdish troops who proved vital in the defeat of the so-called Islamic State's caliphate. Trump later walked back the decision after widespread condemnation from Republicans and Democrats, giving the impression that several thousand U.S. troops would remain in the region to assist its local allies.
The administration says this change means Turkey will take over responsibility for all the IS fighters captured in the region, currently being held primarily by the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces, the anti-IS strike force composed mainly of Kurdish fighters.
But critics describe the Turkish operation as an invasion aimed at attacking the Kurdish forces. The SDF, created with U.S. backing in 2015, is militarily led by the Kurdish People's Protection Units, or YPG, a group Ankara views as terrorists and a security threat on its southern border. The Turks stress the YPG's ties to a separatist Kurdish group in Turkey, the PKK, which has carried out a decades-long violent insurgency against the Turkish state.
In January, Turkey said it would go ahead with its military offensive against Kurdish militias in northeastern Syria regardless of whether the U.S. withdraws its troops from the country. Ankara has already amassed thousands of Turkish troops along its border with Syria.
Threat identification for customs and border agents involves many issues, many scenarios, and many people. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection reports that on a typical day in Fiscal Year 2019, they processed 1,124,075 passengers and pedestrians (371,912 incoming international air passengers and crew, 70,414 passengers and crew on arriving ship/boat, 681,750 incoming land travelers), 273,338 incoming privately owned vehicles, 78,703 truck, rail, and sea containers, $7.3 billion worth of imported products, 97,342 entries of merchandise at air, land, and sea ports of entry. And this is done all over the world:
In the wrong hands, these weapons could cause mass casualties. Because of this, HSI and counterparts within DHS, Department of Commerce, ATF, MDPD, and the U.S. Attorney for Southern District of Florida are vigorously pursuing this issue and implementing countermeasures. These measures include extra resources within HSI Miami, primarily through our Border Enforcement Security Taskforce (BEST) groups, charged with combating emerging and existing Transnational Criminal Organizations and increased inspections of U.S. export shipments to ensure compliance with federal export laws. 350c69d7ab
