An international manhunt continued yesterday for the killers of a U.S. Border Patrol agent who died Saturday when suspected drug smugglers ran him down as he tried to lay spike strips on a road about a mile north of the U.S.-Mexico border.
BEIJING (AP) — China has promised to pursue product pirates identified by U.S. authorities in a new effort to stamp out its thriving counterfeit industry, the head of the U.S. customs agency said yesterday.
"They need to be very cautious," said W. Ralph Basham, a founding partner of the Command Consulting Group who, as commissioner of Customs and Border Protection under President George W. Bush, oversaw the last agent surge and who said the agency needs to be wary of pushing too far and too fast.
Mr. Basham and others said quick expansion means risking cutting corners — something the Border Patrol avoided for the most part in the last surge, when it resisted pressure to cut its 18-week training course.
