U.S. Customs and Border Protection Joins Forces with HireVeterans.com to reach out and Employ U.S. Military Veterans to Protect the United States of America
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). CBP combined the inspectional workforces and broad border authorities of U.S. Customs, U.S. Immigration, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service and the entire U.S. Border Patrol.
CBP includes more than 41,000 employees to manage, control and protect the Nation’s borders, at and between the official ports of entry. “U.S. Customs and Border Protection has accomplished a lot to secure our borders, but there is much more we are doing. We understand that as America’s frontline, the security of a nation rests on our shoulders. We have learned the lessons of 9/11 and are working day and night to make America safer and more secure,” stated Commissioner Robert C. Bonner.
CBP “Twin Goals” – Anti-Terrorism and Facilitating Legitimate Trade and Travel.
“For the first time in our nation’s history, one agency has the lone responsibility of protecting our borders. As the single, unified border agency, CBP’s mission is vitally important to the protection of America and the American people. CBP’s priority mission is preventing terrorists and terrorist weapons from entering the United States, while also facilitating the flow of legitimate trade and travel,” continued Commissioner Bonner.
CBP uses multiple strategies and employs the latest in technology to accomplish its dual goals. CBP’s initiatives are designed to protect the homeland from acts of terrorism, and reduce the vulnerability to the threat of terrorists through a multi-level inspection process.
“U.S. Customs and Border Protection can point to a myriad of accomplishments since 9/11 to better secure our Nation’s borders. They are astonishing in scope and the speed with which we have implemented them. Our borders are more secure than they were on 9/11 — keeping terrorists and their weapons out of our country is the most vital mission of any law enforcement agency – a mission we must succeed at,” stated Commissioner Bonner.
CBP looks to hire the men and women of today’s Armed Forces who possess impressive skills and credentials; with a work ethic that is commensurate within our world class mission of protection.
