BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - U.S. Rep. Kevin Cramer says North Dakota is getting more border patrol agents at crossings in Pembina and Portal.

Cramer says the ports are among 44 in the country that have been identified as having the greatest demonstrated need for new officers.

Cramer says about 2,000 new officers will be assigned to those ports. He says the exact number of new officers in North Dakota has not been determined.

Cramer says more than 1 million vehicles cross the North Dakota-Canadian border each year.
