Through the Lens: Securing America's Borders

U.S. Trade/Travel Trends & Resource Challenges

In recent years, the U.S. has experienced a record increase in international trade and travel. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is frequently asked to provide new or additional port of entry- related services to support our country’s rising traffic volumes but is not always able to accommodate these requests due to on-going resource constraints.

U.S. Capitol Building

The Office of Congressional Affairs serves as the single point of contact within CBP for all communications between CBP and Congress. OCA is committed to addressing any question or concern Members of Congress or their staffs may have related to CBP’s complex mission.
