The US spends about $40.6 billion each year on the US Dept. of Homeland Security.

If the State Patrol was awarded many additional millions of dollars each year to go after drunk drivers- & the problem got worse- would newspeople ask questions?

Would any investigation take place?

Recovery, rehab, treatment, & addiction are important parts of this story.

Has anyone ever seen the press question the US Dept. of Homeland Security/CBP on their role in keeping heroin away from the Puget Sound area?


Post-911 Spending Spree & Massing US Border Patrol Agents at Port Angeles-

Back in 2006 there were only 4 US Border Patrol agents at Port Angeles:

“The Port Angeles Border Patrol Station was staffed with 42 agents as of 2013 with a coverage area that includes Clallam and Jefferson counties. The contingent had grown from four agents in 2006.”

Ahmed Ressam was captured at the traditional port of entry at Port Angeles by Customs Inspectors wearing blue uniforms- not by Border Patrol Agents wearing green uniforms.

Pre-911 staffing & infrastructure levels got the job done. Four US Border Patrol agents were stationed at Port Angeles in 1999.
