WASHINGTON—Last week, U.S. Customs and Border Protection leadership met with representatives from the Northern Border Coalition, Southern Border Communities’ Coalition, and several Washington, DC based non-governmental organizations in Seattle, Washington. Leadership from the Office of Border Patrol, Office of Field Operations, and Office of Internal Affairs provided updates on ongoing operational and policy matters. Meetings with stakeholders are a key component to helping CBP leadership hear directly from the public to ensure accurate information is being shared about agency policies and processes. We are committed to continuing this dialogue in the communities we serve throughout the country.
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.
