Bridge crossing times to increase

U.S. Customs and Border Protection El Paso Field Office is advising members of the traveling public to plan for longer than normal wait times at area ports beginning on Wednesday.

A large number of specially trained CBP officers from the El Paso, Santa Teresa and Tornillo ports of entry are being deployed to CBP’s Arizona and California ports of entry to support the CBP response to the approaching caravan which now appears to be heading in that direction.

The movement of resources will impact all shifts and reduce CBP’s ability to maintain the All Lanes Open Initiative between 6 a.m. and 10 a.m. It is likely crossing times will increase.
