Pakistan City Known for Passport Trade

Pakistan City Known for Passport Trade

But though authorities acknowledge that passport forgery operations are everywhere, an official from Pakistan's Federal Investigative Agency says some 70 percent of fake travel documents come from two cities just 30 miles apart Gujranwala and Gujrat.

This is what the United States fears: that in the serpentine bazaars of Pakistani towns like Gujrat, out of investigators' reach, fake Americans and fake American visitors are being created with cameras and laser printers and the intricate work of forgers' skilled hands. While many of the illegal travelers are simply looking for better-paying jobs, it is a route open to terrorist exploitation.
Interesting article -- it's worth opening up and reading.
