Local Woman Delivers Baby at Douglas Port

TUCSON, Ariz. – A 22-year-old Douglas woman returning from Mexico Tuesday morning delivered a baby boy at the Raul Hector Castro Port of Entry.

The woman approached Customs and Border Protection officers at the pedestrian crossing, stating that she was in labor and about to give birth. Officers took the woman indoors to make her comfortable while they called Emergency Medical Services. The baby, however, was unwilling to wait for EMS and entered the world at the port with the assistance of CBP officers.

EMS soon arrived and transported the mother and her newborn son to a local hospital for further care.

CBP's Office of Field Operations is the primary organization within Homeland Security tasked with an anti-terrorism mission at our nation’s ports. CBP officers screen all people, vehicles and goods entering the United States while facilitating the flow of legitimate trade and travel. Their mission also includes carrying out border-related duties, including narcotics interdiction, enforcing immigration and trade laws, protecting the nation's food supply and agriculture industry from pests and diseases, and occasional births at the port.


U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with management, control and protection of our nation's borders at and between official ports of entry. CBP’s mission includes keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws. Follow us on Twitter @CBPArizona.
