Customs and Border Protection Officers are returning to their home ports

News

RIO GRANDE VALLEY, Texas – U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers will be returning to their home parts by this weekend.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers were reassigned earlier this year to help deal with the surge of migrants amid the border crisis.

Congressman Henry Cuellar has stated that all 750 Customs and Border Protection officers will be back at their home ports by Sunday.

Cuellar also said that the initial reassignment over the summer hurt Customs and Border Protection’s ability to process legitimate trade and travel, increasing the wait times in ports of entries in the Valley and across the southern border.
