Tighter Security Makes Travel to U.S. Even Harder

Quote:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Tightened security to stop terrorists from entering the United States is making it harder for foreigners to come into the country at a time when the travel industry is still reeling from the Sept. 11 attacks.

President Bush (news - web sites) issued a directive on Monday to tighten up enforcement of immigration policies. It set up a task force to detain and deport foreigners suspected of ties to terrorists and to track foreign students in the United States.

Heightened visa and passport inspection has caused congestion on the busy Mexico-U.S. border, where lines of vehicles wait up to four hours to cross the border, hurting frontier businesses.
