INS: Borders Safe on 9-11, But Security Heightened

With the anniversary of the attacks, there is heightened anxiety for many.  And, for the agency protecting the nation's border.. there is heightened vigilance. The director of the Dallas district of the INS was in Tyler today, speaking to the South Tyler Rotary Club about immigration policy.

She says more knowledge about terrorism means safer borders.

Anne Estrada:  "[We are] certainly at a heightened level of alert. [We have] more information than we had previously, and I think we are safer than we were last year at this time."

The government says they have had no threats against the nation's border checkpoints this anniversary week.
