United States Immigration and Naturalization Service

Terrorists Welcome: All others Line up and Wait INS is the ‘Weakest Link’ in protecting the United States by Howard Melamed 09/15/01 1st Draft I am sure you will  share with me in my disappointment and frustration with our Immigration and Naturalization Service.  Once again as with other terrorist attacks within our great country, the INS let us down.

Coconut Creek is suing Deerfield Beach.
