U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) faces a daunting task each
day: keeping terrorists and their weapons outside of our nation's
borders in addition to enforcing hundreds of other U.S.
regulations. CBP is responsible for monitoring 1,900 miles of
the Mexican border along with 5,000 miles of the Canadian border,
in addition to regulating 327 ports of entry. Acting CBP
Commissioner Ahern will discuss the agency's top priorities and
goals in his address. How will CBP continue or improve
imperative border security efforts? Join us as Commissioner
Ahern addresses these questions and other related matters.
