Border Crossings Set to Reopen in the U.S. Amid Decline in Illegal Immigration

U.S. to Reopen Four Border Crossings as Illegal Immigration Declines

U.S. border authorities announced plans to reopen four legal U.S.-Mexico border crossings due to a reduction in illegal immigration, freeing up personnel. The crossings include an international bridge in Eagle Pass, Texas, two in Arizona, and one near San Diego, California. While resuming operations, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection emphasized ongoing commitment to prioritize border security. In December, U.S. border authorities faced challenges processing migrants, with apprehensions reaching nearly 11,000 in a single day. The reopening follows increased collaboration between Mexican and U.S. officials to address record migration at the shared border.
