CALEXICO — A bomb threat that led to the closure of three ports of entry in the San Diego area did not affect operations at the three ports in this area.
The Calexico downtown Port of Entry, the Calexico East Port of Entry and the Andrade port all remain on the highest possible state of alert, as they have since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
However, Lauren Mack, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service in the San Diego area, said there have been no reports of bomb threats in the Calexico area.
Monday's bomb threats were phoned into the California Highway Patrol's communication center in Kearny Mesa at 1:44 p.m.
Based on that threat, the ports in San Ysidro, Otay Mesa and Tecate were closed for just under two hours, with several hundred port employees evacuated.
