The independent commission investigating the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks finds evidence that many of the hijackers violated U.S. immigration laws. The panel's progress report depicts a dangerously lax immigration system and faults security at U.S. borders. Victims' families want to extend the panel's May 27 deadline to allow for a deeper probe into U.S. security failings. Hear NPR's Larry Abramson.
