SAN LUIS, ARIZ.—New signage was recently installed by U. S. Customs and Border Protection at the Port of San Luis indicating the last available turn before entering Mexico will now be at the intersection of Urtuzuastegui and Main Street.
In the past, some drivers used the former "point of no return" area within the port to drop-off travelers departing the country on foot. This practice will no longer be authorized. Once travelers are south of Urtuzuastegui and Main Street, CBP will assume, for inspectional purposes, their intentions are to depart the United States.
CBP's Office of Field Operations is the primary organization within Homeland Security tasked with an anti-terrorism mission at our nation's ports. CBP officers screen all people, vehicles and goods entering the United States while facilitating the flow of legitimate trade and travel. Their mission also includes carrying out border-related duties, including narcotics interdiction, enforcing immigration and trade laws, and protecting the nation's food supply and agriculture industry from pests and diseases.
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.
