All About Homeland Security from Brett Braaten

Homeland Security Expert Brett Braaten

Ever since September 11, 2001, Homeland Security has become a major concern for American citizens. That’s why I invited Brett Braaten–a Homeland Security official for 29 years–into “The Communication Corner,” the weekly interview program I host for WBCX, “The Voice of Brenau,” on 89.1 FM.

During our fascinating conversation, we covered these and other topics:

–Origin and development of the U.S. Customs service
–Regulation of intellectual property rights
–Attempts at immigration reform
–Internet fraud, originating mainly from Nigeria
–Canadian-based smuggling of Rogaine to pharmacies
–Counterfeit products sold in reputable U.S. businesses
–Explanation of the H1b visa fraud, impacting skilled American workers
