1. Southwest Border Enforcement Initiatve 12 6 $948
 
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) requests $948,000 in personnel funding to strengthen the Department's Southwest Border Enforcement Initiative by increasing ATF's ability to inspect and investigate firearms licensees along the Southwest Border. Firearms-related violence has been perpetrated by warring drug trafficking organizations in border cities such as Laredo, Texas, and Nuevo Laredo, Mexico. Agents have noted an "iron river of guns" with thousands of weapons per week crossing the border into Mexico from the United States. Approximately 40 percent of those weapons are linked to drug trafficking organizations. These additional ATF positions will strengthen industry oversight in the region and implement a focused inspection program to identify purchasers, traffickers and non-compliant licensees that may be sources of illegally trafficked firearms used by violent criminals. FY 2009 current services resources for the Firearms program are 3,576 positions, 3,554 FTE, and $739.3 million.
