What is it like to be a US Customs and Border Protection officer ?
It can be tough. Land border POEs involve breathing a lot of auto exhaust, and basically, if not literally, working outdoors in the weather. Your assigned work location might be in a part of the country you and your family would never have chosen to live. Airports are nicer, but cost of living anywhere near some airports is EXPENSIVE. Some CBPOs do cargo inspection at harbors!
