GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — The U.S. Border Patrol has opened a new station west of Grand Fork's airport.
The $5.8 million building replaces a smaller one in the Grand Forks city limits. It does not replace the Border Patrol regional headquarters in Grand Forks.
The 34,000-square-foot station includes a garage for 31 vehicles, as well as offices, a booking desk, dog kennels and holding cells. It will be used by nearly 50 agents.
The Border Patrol has 238 agents at eight stations in the Grand Forks sector, which guards 861 miles of the U.S. border across northern Minnesota and North Dakota.
