(Port Funding approved)….The funds are for the Calexico West Port of Entry.
It is not all the County was seeking, but it is a good start, according to local officials. They say they will pursue the rest in the next fiscal year. It was announced Friday that $191 million would be allotted to the new reconfiguration and expansion project at the Calexico West Port of Entry. County officials applauded the federal representatives, congressional leadership and President Trump for approving the funding. They still need about $85 million to complete the project. They say those funds will be sought in fiscal year 2020.
