$9.5 Million has been included in the fiscal year 2009 Homeland Security Budget in Congress to combat the illegal import of textile products.  According to Alabama Representative Robert Aderholdt (R-Hayleville), the money will be used to prevent Chinese and other textile importers from illegally changing the documentation on goods sent to the U.S. to get around U.S. Customs.  Some importers circumvent quotas by transshipment, the practice of changing the country of origin of their goods. Still others use false documents or labels or provide incorrect descriptions of the merchandise. Over the last four years, Congressman Aderholt has successfully included nearly $40 million in funding for U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to stop illegal textile transshipments.
