Help is coming for customs and border protection agents at the US-Mexico border.
California Governor Gavin Newsom has sent an additional 20 service members to each Mexico-California point of entry – a 50 per cent boost in staffing.
The reservice will help customs and border protection agents at their secondary inspection site.
They’ll be working with the officers as they run X-ray machines, testing incoming cars and trucks for illegal drugs being brought across the border.
The state hopes the deployment will help stem the flow of fentanyl into the country.
