This week, U.S. Customs and Border Protection met with representatives from the Southern Border Communities’ Coalition, the Northern Border Coalition, and several Washington, DC based non-governmental organizations. The meeting highlighted CBP’s efforts in transparency, accountability, and oversight across a number of policy and operational areas. This dialogue with our non-governmental partners is essential to our continued progress on a transparent and accountable CBP. We look forward to continuing our work together.
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.
