Congresswoman Miller welcomes addition of 20 Customs and Border Protection Officers to Port Huron's Port of Entry

(AREA) -- The U.S. Customs and Border Protection is increasing its manpower by 2,000 officers nationwide. Twenty officers will be hired at Port Huron's port of entry at the Blue Water Bridge. Detroit's port of entry at the Ambassador Bridge will be increased by 50. Congresswoman Candice Miller, Chairwoman of the Subcommittee on Border and Maritime Security says the move keeps our entryways safe. Miller added that as the second busiest land crossing on the northern tier, traffic on the Blue Water Bridge can quickly overwhelm current screening capabilities, causing backups and delays. While completing the unfinished plaza at the bridge is the only real long-term solution, adding additional officers to the crossing will help alleviate traffic congestion and improve the flow of commerce.
