US President Barack Obama signed into law a border security Bill on 13 August 2010. The objective of the border security bill(law) is to strengthen the security along with the US- Mexico border. It will help US restraining the illegal immigrants entering into US from Mexico and also at the same time controlling criminal gangs operating near the US- Mexico border area.
