CBP Final Rule: Extension of Border Zone in the State of New Mexico

"This final rule amends Department of Homeland Security (DHS) regulations to extend the distance [to 55 miles] that certain nonimmigrant Mexican nationals presenting a Border Crossing Card, or other proper immigration documentation, may travel in New Mexico without obtaining a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Form I-94 (Form I-94), Arrival/Departure Record.  This change is intended to promote commerce and tourism in southern New Mexico while still ensuring that sufficient safeguards are in place to prevent illegal entry to the United States." – Federal Register/ Vol. 78, No. 113 / Wednesday, June 12, 2013.
