LAREDO — Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-Laredo) announced his support July 5 for a U.S. Customs and Border Protection and Department of Defense joint training operation. South Texas residents can expect to see an increased law enforcement and military presence in the region as CBP and DoD join forces for this limited duration coordinated training operation. The joint-training venture will provide real-world training opportunities for DoD military personnel while also serving to enhance the Border Patrol’s ability to counter threats along the border.
