PRESIDIO, TEXAS—U.S. Customs and Border Protection Office of Field Operations is adding a fourth inspection booth to the Presidio port of entry. The booth was delivered to the port April 5, and is available for use during periods of heavy traffic.
"This extra primary booth will enhance our ability to process travelers arriving at the Presidio Port of Entry," said CBP Presidio Port Director David Lambrix. "CBP is working hard to facilitate the flow of legitimate trade and traffic while maintaining its vital homeland security mission. The addition of this booth will help us meet those goals and better serve our community."
The booth was secured following discussions between the CBP El Paso Field Office and CBP counterparts in California. The booth was previously utilized by CBP officers at the San Ysidro port of entry which is currently undergoing a complete renovation.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our nation's borders at and between the official ports of entry. CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws.
