BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- North Dakota is getting more border patrol agents at crossings in Pembina and Portal.
The ports are among 44 in the country that have been identified as having the greatest demonstrated need for new officers.
About 2,000 new officers will be assigned to those ports. The exact number of new officers in North Dakota has not been determined.
More than 1 million vehicles cross the North Dakota-Canadian border each year.
