The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced on August 3, 2023, that the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) mobile app, CBP One, has facilitated more than 170,000 appointments in six months.
The CBP One app is free and available to migrants in Central and Northern Mexico to schedule appointments to present themselves at a port of entry (POE) along the southwest border with the United States. Individuals who present at one of eight POEs (Nogales, Brownsville, Eagle Pass, Hidalgo, El Paso, Calexico, and San Ysidro) with CBP One appointments along the southwest border are vetted and processed. The process includes biographic and biometric security vetting and background screening, DHS said.
DHS said the number of available appointments has increased to 1,450 per day, up nearly 50 percent from the 1,000 appointments per day on May 12, 2023, when the process started.
