I had the privilege of working with the great men and women of CBP at this port earlier this year and I was very impressed with their dedication and commitment to the communities from both sides of the border. I plan to continue and enhance partnerships with the cities of Eagle Pass, Texas and Piedras Negras, Coahuila, Mexico. Earlier this year I implemented operational strategies that proved to be fruitful, such as the opening of the port’s Trusted Traveler Program enrollment center and the implementation of a dedicated SENTRI lane at The Camino Real International Bridge. I’m honored to serve the bordering cities of Eagle Pass and Piedras Negras as we strive towards common goals of securing our communities and improving legitimate travel and trade,” said Port Director Paul Del Rincon, Eagle Pass Port of Entry.
