TUCSON, Ariz. -- A new report shows the U.S. Border Patrol's Tucson
sector remains the busiest along the U.S. Mexican border but
concludes the agency hasn't set goals to improve security.

The report from the General Accountability Office also said the
agency doesn't accurately access risks and needs when it deploys

Rep. Ron Barber asked the GAO to look at the Border Patrol and review
its security strategy and its resource needs.

The review found a 6 percent dip in apprehensions border-wide between
2008 and 2011. But the Tucson sector accounted for 38 percent of all
drug seizures and 37 percent of all apprehensions despite covering
just 13 percent of the area.

Barber plans community meetings in Douglas and Tucson late this month
to discuss the report's findings.
