Title: CBP 101

CBP 101
  • How we secure the borders
  • while facilitating legitimate travel and trade

November 2007
CBP defends Americas borders against all threats
while facilitating its economic stability.
The scope of our task is daunting
  • More than 46,000 employees protect the United
    States from terrorists, drug and human smugglers,
    agricultural disease, and more, while keeping
    travel and trade flowing.
  • We guard approximately 7,000 miles of land border
    the U.S. shares with Canada and Mexico.
  • We also secure 95,000 miles of shoreline in
    partnership with the United States Coast Guard.

Ports of entry are key line of defense
  • In fiscal year 2007, CBP officers inspected 411
    million travelers and more than 120 million cars,
    trucks, buses, trains, vessels and aircraft.
  • That same year, CBP officers arrested more than
    25,000 suspected criminals, seized more than
    820,000 pounds of narcotics, interdicted more
    than 170,000 inadmissible aliens and conducted
    1.5 million agricultural interceptions.

We welcome legitimate travelers
  • SENTRI A program that allows pre-approved
    travelers to receive expedited processing at
    dedicated U.S./Mexico land border crossings.
  • NEXUS Bi-national expedited traveler program
    whose members have crossing privileges at air,
    land, and marine ports of entry.
  • Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative Will
    require a passport or other accepted document to
    enter or re-enter the United States by land and
  • Immigration Advisory Program CBP officers
    stationed at foreign airports pre-screen
    passengers destined for the U.S. and identify
    those who may be inadmissible.

We facilitate legitimate global trade
  • CBP processed more than 2 trillion in imported
    goods in fiscal year 2007, collecting 33 billion
    in revenue.
  • Under the Customs-Trade Partnership Against
    Terrorism, participants who meet certain security
    standards are provided expedited processing
  • As part of the Secure Freight Initiative and the
    Container Security Initiative, CBP officers
    pre-screen shipping containers at major
    international seaports to prevent terrorist cargo
    from entering the U.S.
  • Trade and tariff laws are enforced by CBP import
    and entry specialists and other personnel to
    ensure a fair and competitive trade environment.
  • CBP maintains an aggressive and comprehensive
    intellectual property rights enforcement program.

We protect American agriculture
  • Agriculture specialists inspect ships, airplanes,
    vehicles, cargo, passengers, and their baggage
    for prohibited products that may carry pests and
  • The products that agriculture specialists prevent
    from entering the U.S. pose a very real threat to
    American crops, natural forests, domestic plants
    and our animal production industry.
  • During fiscal year 2007, CBP agriculture
    specialists made 1.57 million agricultural
    interceptions (meats plants that are prohibited
    entry into the U.S.). Through inspection of
    commodities and seized products, they found
    nearly 60,000 actionable or reportable plant pest
