The U.S. Customs and Border Safety company introduced Saturday that it’ll resume San Ysidro Port of Entry’s Pedestrian West southbound operations.

“With the resumption of operations on the Pedestrian West southbound facility, we’re taking steps to return to operational capability and enhance the each day lifetime of 1000’s of vacationers within the area who cross day-after-day,” stated San Ysidro Port Director Mariza Marin.

The Pedestrian West facility was closed for the previous two months attributable to a whole lot of asylum seekers gathering on the border south of San Diego, which resulted in overcrowding.

The southbound crossing facility has reopened with restricted hours of operation seven days every week from 3 p.m. to 11 p.m. The northbound crossing facility, which reopened on Thursday, will proceed operations seven days every week with restricted hours of operation from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m., in accordance with CBP officers.

“CBP will proceed to work on enhancing financial and social relations throughout the border, significantly on the eve of the vacation season,” Marin added.
