PEMBINA, N.D. (AP) - The federal government plans to build a $13 million Border Patrol station in northeastern North Dakota.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection will build the 30,000-square-foot facility on 10 acres of land in Pembina. Spokesman Kris Grogan tells the Grand Forks Herald (http://bit.ly/UBYn63 ) that the government is finalizing the property purchase and construction could begin in a few months.
Customs and Border Protection considered eight towns for the facility. The other finalists were Joliette, N.D., and Hallock, Minn.
About 50 Border Patrol agents are based in Pembina.
