Local News

FALFURRIAS, Texas – The newly constructed Border Patrol checkpoint in Falfurrias is now operating. 

The previous checkpoint, that opened in 1994, had only three primary inspection lanes. The new facility has eight primary lanes to help speed up wait times for travelers.

Officials say the facility also includes advanced technology, like x-ray portals allowing agents to see what’s inside a vehicle prior to secondary inspection.
