History and Area of Responsibility

The Bellingham Station lies approximately 18 miles south of the United States/Canada Border. The city of Bellingham is a regional transportation hub for rail and air traffic, home to the Bellingham International Airport and the Alaska and Washington Ferry systems.

As the primary federal law enforcement agency between the ports-of-entry, the Border Patrol's mission is to prevent the entry of terrorists and their weapons of terrorism: to enforce the laws that protect America's homeland by the detection, interdiction, and apprehension of those who attempt to illegally enter or smuggle any person or contraband across our Nation's sovereign borders.
