Program to Help Trucks Helps Drug Smugglers

A program that was introduced in the United States to help speed up the ability to ship goods between the United States and Mexico has had some unfortunate side effects.  The program allows trucks to gain fast entry between the U.S. and Mexico border by being able to take a "fast lane" entrance into either country.  This program can allow large trucks to pass through between the borders without inspection.  This has caused drug traffickers to attempt to place shipments on these trucks.

Authorities have stated that even though a small fraction of the trucks are inspected,  law enforcement have found several shipments of drugs on these types of trucks.  Authorities have stated that they understand the serious nature of the problem and are attempting to make the program more secure.
