ABSTRACT
The article reports that U.S. Customs and Border Protection's (CBP) Office of Technology Innovation and Acquisition assistant commissioner Mark Borkowski has disputed the Government Accountability Office (GAO) report on potential risks in the Arizona Border Surveillance Technology Plan. The CBP plan is designed to better secure the U.S. southwest border, with actual costs lower than the initial expectation of 1.5 billion U.S. dollars. Borkowski says CBP believes the plan is not that risky.
