Recently the Obama Administration’s decision to close nine CBP stations across four states in order to ‘reassign agents to high-priority areas closer to the border’ has people talking about whether or not this will make the U.S. more vulnerable to criminal activity.

Though the task goes on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, this document highlights just a few of the key ‘busts’ along the south-west border from Texas to San Diego in one short week (July 12-18, 2012), proving the vigilance of the CBP’s agents in protecting U.S border security. Also contained within this document are key facts and figures for the various border interest areas including: Drug Interdiction, North and South Border stats, and Janet Napolitano’s plans for the future of legal migration, trade and technology.
