Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium
The time has come to address America's border infrastructure in
order to better facilitate trade and travel at our nation's land
border ports of entry (POEs). As a result of years of
inattention and underinvestment, POEs along the northern and
southern borders are clogged and inefficient. Trade is
stifled, and economic vitality of communities on both sides of the
border is being impaired.
Join The Heritage Foundation and the Border Trade Alliance as we
tackle these border infrastructure issues and identify possible
solutions, coupling input from primary on-the-ground stakeholders
with policy experts and decision-makers.
