Two New Programs In Place To Speed Up Border Crossing In San Luis

SentriTwo new programs are in force at the U.S.-Mexico border crossings in San Luis.  The first new program is called Sentri and helps to expedite processing for those who qualify. 

Participants must go through an extensive background check and personal interview.  They are still subject to screenings and their privileges can be revoked if they break the rules.  

The second new program is called the Ready Program.  Participants have a radio-frequency identification chip placed inside their passport documents and are scanned before they get to the border. 

The information pops up on a computer screen allowing Border Patrol officers to review the information quickly and focus on the others inside the vehicle that may not have such a device.  The program is running in both San Luis and Nogales.
