Northern borders in Vt., NY to add more staffing

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

Busy border crossings in our area will be getting more agents.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection have released new details on plans to add staffing to the northern border. Vermont's congressional delegation says the Highgate and Derby crossings will each get five new agents.

New York Congressman Bill Owens says the Champlain crossing, the busiest in the Northeast, will get 20 additional agents. It could be next year before the officers are on the job.
