What is it like in the post-September 11 world? If one could stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the Immigration and RCMP officers whose job it is to question, evaluate, detain, incarcerate or admit, would one feel safer….or not? The Undefended Border explores the furious new pace of immigration police work. Following a handful of Immigration, RCMP and CSIS agents working in the Greater Toronto Area, Ottawa and Fort Erie, The Undefended Border documents the growing tenacity of officers literally under fire. There is much less hesitation to remove illegals now; September 11 changed all that. The Undefended Border burrows deep into the criminal underground and into the newly formed enforcement units trying to control it: the Immigration Task Force, the War Crimes Unit, the "Failed Refugee" Program and the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit.
