Nineteen journalists from fourteen countries toured Customs and Border Protection (CBP) operations at Dulles Airport. CBP officers and spokespersons provided information on the agency’s mission and dispelled common misperceptions about the arrivals process for visitors. Journalists then filmed and interviewed CBP officers at work on the immigration and customs lines, and visited the immigration secondary interview room. Agriculture K-9 officers were also available for interviews.
