TV Station Uncovers INS Scandal -- (1/4/03)
KIRO TV of Seattle, Washington, has uncovered a scandal involving
the failure of a border surveillance camera system that was produced
by a company whose vice president is the daughter of the head
of the House Hispanic Caucus. According to KIRO, despite failure
of the system to work properly, International Microwave Corporation
recently received a no-bid contract for $200 million to supply
border security systems for the entire U.S. border. "I will
have a little trouble sleeping at night and I think all of us
should be a little bit worried," said retired Border Patrol
Chief (Ret) Carey James.
