Border Security Metrics Report

The Fiscal Year 2017 National Defense Authorization Act directs the Department of Homeland Security “to develop metrics … to measure the effectiveness of security between ports of entry, at ports of entry, in the maritime environment and to measure the effectiveness of the aviation assets and operations of Air and Marine Operations of U.S. Customs and Border Protection.”  This report meets this direction by providing the most comprehensive, rigorous set of border security metrics ever produced by the Department, along with a thorough discussion of the strengths and limitations of the Department’s available methodological approaches.

DHS Statement on First Step in Process to Address Individuals in Mexico with Active MPP Cases

DHS began the first step in a phased approach to restore safe and orderly processing at the Southwest Border. DHS and its international partners have now initiated the virtual registration process for individuals who had been forced to return to Mexico under the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) and have a pending case before the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR). The United States is continuing to strictly enforce existing immigration laws and border security measures. Individuals should not approach the border, including at designated ports of entry, unless and until they are approved and receive appointment information through the remote registration process.
