FOR INTERNATIONAL TRAVELERS
MIAMI - In the weeks leading up to Valentine’s Day, teams of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agriculture specialists at Miami International Airport (MIA) expect to process more than a billion cut flower imports—serving as an ever-vigilant front line of defense against dangerous pests and plant diseases. While a relatively small number of harmful pests are found among the hundreds of millions of stems inspected each week ahead Valentine’s Day, a single dangerous pest can cause significant damage to our nation’s crops.
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.
