The U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency announced Saturday that it will resume San Ysidro Port of Entry's Pedestrian West southbound operations starting Monday.
"With the resumption of operations at the Pedestrian West southbound facility, we are taking steps to return to operational capacity and improve the daily life of thousands of travelers in the region who cross every day," said San Ysidro Port Director Mariza Marin.
The Pedestrian West facility was closed for the past two months due to hundreds of asylum seekers gathering at the border south of San Diego, which resulted in overcrowding.
The southbound crossing facility will reopen with limited hours of operation seven days a week from 3 p.m. to 11 p.m. The northbound crossing facility, which reopened on Thursday, will continue operations seven days a week with limited hours of operation from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m., according to CBP officials.
