WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Claudia Tenney (NY-24) celebrated the 100th anniversary of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) at several commemorative events across New York’s 24th District last week.

Tenney joined CBP agents from across the Buffalo Sector of the Northern Border which spans 450 miles of the border with Canada from the Ohio/Pennsylvania state line to Jefferson County, New York.

At one of the events, Tenney presented a Congressional Proclamation to Chief Patrol Agent Thomas Martin of the Buffalo Sector, recognizing his and his agents’ dedication to the country. Tenney also joined Rochester CBP Station Chief Juan Ramirez and Deputy Sector Chief James Damato at a ceremony to thank them and their agents for their service.

“Due to President Biden’s disastrous border policies, there has been an alarming surge in illegal crossings at our Northern Border, putting our courageous Customs and Border Protection agents in unprecedentedly challenging situations and endangering our communities,” Tenney said. “Our border protection agents need more support than ever, and I remain dedicated to ensuring they have the resources and backing necessary to safely and effectively do their jobs. Last week, I joined members of the Customs and Border Protection from the Buffalo Sector to celebrate CBP’s 100th anniversary and to thank them for their unwavering commitment to securing our borders. I will always support our CBP agents and their mission to protect our nation.”
