The most alarming sentence was left unexplained: "In addition, plans call for southbound vehicle inspection booths to be operated by U.S. Customs and Border Protection inspectors, and a secondary inspection area."


WTF? Is this regular Big Bro, or Big Bro Trump?

Another interesting sentence is:

"The 57-hour closure of the southbound vehicle lanes is necessary for the safe removal of a large steel and canvas canopy that currently covers a portion of the southbound car lanes, according to GSA."

They installed what they will be removing just a couple of years ago.

I wonder if they will ever staff the extra booths they built in each northbound lane.

Our tax dollars at work.

That is vague. Read a recent post, another site, a midweek
crosser, returning no., after 2+ hr. wait. asked CBP officer
why so long a wait, after yrs. of upgrades, 750 mil $, was
told in beautifully crafted govt. employees beaurocratic jargon,
(you know the usual budget cuts, etc. built in excuse), was
that we don't have the staff to adequately man the booths

Regular. Read about this several years ago during the Obama administration. The Feds want to know what you're taking with you on your way down south.
