    They're not, "not up to par". They just flat aren't enforcing the law.

    Unless their is more to the story, this seems to be another over reach of a government department.

    About the IPR Center
    The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) led National Intellectual Property Rights Coordination Center (IPR Center) stands at the forefront of the United States Government's response to global intellectual property (IP) theft and enforcement of its international trade laws. The mission of the IPR Center is to ensure national security by protecting the public's health and safety, the U.S. economy, and our war fighters, and to stop predatory and unfair trade practices that threaten the global economy. To accomplish this goal, the IPR Center brings together 21 partner agencies, consisting of 17 key federal agencies, Interpol, Europol and the governments of Canada and Mexico in a task-force setting. The task force structure enables the IPR Center to effectively leverage the resources, skills, and authorities of each partner and provide a comprehensive response to IP theft. The IPR Center is led by an ICE-HSI Director with Deputy Directors from HSI and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

    Hahahahhahhahahhahh!!!! Rangers rule. They rocked last night! How can you not love 5 goals in the 3rd? And Anthony Duclair (aka Hot New Ranger)scored his first NHL goal, the first of many to come. We got to enjoy the fabulous spectacle after coming home from the debate. It was better than sex.

    So how would this problem have been avoided without DHS?

    it's not just this issue alone. homeland security could have been handled through existing infrastructure. likewise, the patriot act was an enormous overreach. both were passed during an emotional time for the country, and that's never a good time to rush something through.

    But it is a great opportunity for the government to seize yet more power.

    the Bill of Rights took a beating after 9/11, that's for sure. it was comparable to the drug war, except in a much shorter period of time.
