Confirmation of CBP Commissioner McAleenan

Kevin McAleenan was confirmed by U.S. Senate as Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection. He has served as Acting Commissioner since January 2017. Under his leadership, CBP has developed strategies that protect the nation’s borders from terrorism and attack transnational criminal networks. He has also advanced the development of CBP’s trade transformation agenda, designed to help America compete in the global economy.

On a visit to Mexico City last month, Commissioner McAleenan signed three agreements with Mexican counterparts (SAT) to strengthen the relationship between them, enforce trade and customs compliance, and advance cargo pre-inspection.

The Chamber met with McAleenan during the delegation trip to Washington D.C. in September 2017, and we look forward to continue working with him, advocating for a secure and efficient border that enhances cross-border commerce.
