CBP to Extend Range of BCC 'Laser Visas' in New Mexico to 55 Miles

"U.S. Customs and Border Protection submitted to the Federal Register today a final rule that will extend the border zone up to 55 miles, from the current 25 mile restriction, for Border Crossing Card (BCC) holders crossing from Mexico into the state of New Mexico. This change allows BCC holders entering the United States by land, to travel to the cities of Deming and Las Cruces, N.M., stimulating commerce, trade and tourism activity in the area." - CBP, June 7, 2013.
