“Beyond all the sophisticated infrastructure, this new facility exemplifies the spirit of the agents who work here every day and share a purpose to serve. It’s not the brick and mortar, equipment, or technology that what makes the stations,” said Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Rodolfo Karisch. “It’s the Border Patrol agents who report for duty here every day that are the most valuable to us and our mission.”

The designing of the facility, located along Highway 90 West near Comstock, began in June 2012 and construction substantially completed in April 2015.  The facility is designed to accommodate 250 agents in a 48,000-square-foot building. It is located on more than 36 acres of land and replaced an 897-square-foot building that was constructed in 1961. 

In attendance were current, retired, local, state, federal personnel, and representing the 23rd District of Texas was U.S. Representative Will Hurd. The Grand Opening culminated with a ribbon cutting and a tour of the facilities.
