NEW YORK — In the face of a developing winter storm on the northeastern U.S. coast, CBP operations will remain business-as-usual. CBP officers will be ready to process all arriving passengers and cargo at air, land, and seaports in the Northeast.
“The New York Field Office and CBP will continue to work with their local partners to monitor Juno, and ensure the safety of all personnel and the traveling public during this powerful winter storm,” said Director of Field Operations Robert E. Perez, New York Field Operations. “We are a 24-hour, seven-days-a-week operation; and CBP personnel stand ready to process all international passengers and cargo upon arrival in the U.S.”
During inclement weather or other emergency situations, CBP officers are always on-duty and prepared to process travelers and cargo. CBP managers in the northeast also work cooperatively with the port authorities, airline industries, Federal Inspectional Services agencies, trade stakeholders, and other law enforcement entities to facilitate the safe processing of passengers and cargo.
