CBP—International Trade Activities U. S. Customs and Border Protection will facilitate about $2 trillion in legitimate trade this year while enforcing U. S. trade laws that protect the economy, the health and the safety of the American people. We accomplish this through close partnerships with the trade community, other government agencies and foreign governments.

S. economy, or threaten the health and safety of the American people • PTI’s drive the investment of CBP resources and enforcement and facilitation efforts
