GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN UPDATE: STATEMENT FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY REGARDING PORTS OF ENTRY

portFor SIA Members, Reps and Retailers who are affected, we did some checking and found that Ports of Entry will remain open during the government shutdown. According to the Homeland Security website, “CBP Port of Entry Operations, including CBP Cargo Security and Revenue Collections, as well as Border Security programs, including Border Patrol and CBP Air and Marine Operations, will remain operational under a government shutdown because they have been deemed law enforcement necessary or necessary for the safety of life and protection of property.” For more information from Homeland Security, click here.
