Travel Advisory

Canada Day and U.S. Independence Day

(Wednesday, June 27, 2012)
Pembina, N.D. — U.S. Customs and Border Protection is reminding both Americans and Canadians planning trips across the border into the United States during the upcoming holiday weekend to make sure they have proper documents and to anticipate heavy traffic.

CBP strongly encourages travelers to obtain a radio frequency identification (RFID)-enabled travel document such as a U.S. Passport Card, Enhanced Driver’s License/Enhanced Identification Card or Trusted Traveler Program card (NEXUS, SENTRI, Global Entry or FAST/EXPRES) to expedite their entry and make crossing the border more efficient.

Additionally, all travelers are reminded of a few simple steps they can employ to cross the border. Plan your trip and allow extra time for crossing the border. Review the “Know Before You Go” tip sheet. ( http://www.cbp.gov ) Wait times for the ports of International Falls, Minnesota and Pembina, North Dakota can be monitored at Border Wait Times. ( apps.cbp.gov/bwt/ ) Avoid peak travel times when at all possible. The heaviest traffic periods are typically between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.

CBP officials continually monitor traffic and border crossing times at area ports of entry and fully staff all inspection lanes during peak periods.

CIUDAD VICTORIA, TAMAULIPAS

On Monday, attacks using explosive devices in the capital continued with 2 new explosions. The first was a grenade thrown into an area of seized vehicles behind a state police facility.

MEXICO

Marisela Morales, the Attorney General, has said that initial investigation in the aftermath of the Mexico City airport shootings of 3 federal agents has revealed that corrupt federal agents have been smuggling cocaine through the airport to the U.S. and Spain. (About a year ago, several U.S. carrier flight attendants were arrested in Spain for this.)
