Advance Copy of CBP NPRM: Opening of Boquillas Border Crossing and Update to the Class B Port of Entry Description

"This notice of proposed rulemaking proposes to create a border crossing in Big Bend National Park to be called Boquillas. The Boquillas crossing would be situated between Presidio and Del Rio, Texas. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and the National Park Service plan to partner on the construction of a joint use facility in Big Bend National Park where the border crossing would operate. This NPRM proposes to designate the Boquillas border crossing as a “Customs station” for customs purposes and a Class B port of entry for immigration purposes. This NPRM also proposes to update the description of a Class B port of entry to reflect current border crossing documentation requirements." - FR Doc. 2011-27792 Filed 10/27/2011 at 8:45 am; Publication Date: 10/28/2011.
