Chapter 7

Pezanowski had little sympathy for them. He knew that the detainees captured tonight might be in camps living in squalor for six months to two years, but they had broken the law. Even the kids would go back. It didn't count anymore that you were born in the US if your parents were illegal. A special amendment to the US constitution had taken care of that.

Jason was one of many who had over the years made the transition from some other agency, yet his many years of experience in the CIA and DHS only seemed to make his job more and more routine. He felt he was in a rut. Some extracurricular activities related to his work provided some necessary diversion and the local cops were reliable enough in setting him up with an occasional hooker, but the fact that his career did not progress also kept him in a sour mood.

Still, there were only a few things that really upset him about the job. A memo from his boss had managed to do it now.

Unlike the FBI, DHS was not that heavily involved in the day-to-day activities of law enforcement. And, unlike the CIA, they ran few overseas ops. However, as head of the Counter Terrorism Section, Pezanowski's work was not routine; his section caught a lot of the cases that didn't seem to fit anywhere else. Besides INS, there was a Port Security Section and an Industrial Security Section which received the more routine cases involving terrorist action within the US borders. Most of Counter Terrorism Section's cases were not easily categorized. It was surprising to Pezanowski that the boss knew enough about the DHS bureaucracy to direct his memo to the right person.
