BORDER UPDATES - SENTRI Members Dropping Off Non-SENTRI Passengers

CBP has noticed that incorrect information is being distributed about
SENTRI cards being revoked. They are asking for your help to please
distribute the following message to your contacts in the community.

CBP has not and at this time is not revoking SENTRI cards when we
detect SENTRI members unloading passengers from their vehicle while in
the SENTRI lanes.

Due to the danger of having people walking in vehicle lanes, CBP is
asking that all non-SENTRI passengers be dropped off prior to entering
into the United States. Please be aware that US territory extends
south of the primary inspection booths.

If you must drop off or unload passengers in the vehicle lanes, CBP is
asking drivers to please make sure that you do not block traffic,
cause any type of traffic delay, or create a dangerous situation.

We are also asking that you remind your non-SENTRI passengers to go to
the back of the pedestrian line.

If you have any questions about this please contact the SENTRI office
at (619) 690-7600 or San Diego Field Office at (619) 652-9966 and
press 0 for the operator.
