Mr. Shuster, from the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure,
submitted the following
R E P O R T
[To accompany H.R. 2415]
The Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, to whom
was referred the bill (H.R. 2415) to designate the United
States Customs Administrative Building at the Ysleta/Zaragosa
Port of Entry located at 797 South Ysleta in El Paso, Texas, as
the ``Timothy C. McCaghren Customs Administrative Building'',
having considered the same, report favorably thereon with
amendments and recommend that the bill as amended do pass.
The amendments are as follows:
Strike out all after the enacting clause and insert in lieu
thereof the following:
SECTION 1. DESIGNATION.
The United States Customs Administrative Building at the Ysleta/
Zaragosa Port of Entry located at 797 South Zaragosa Road in El Paso,
Texas, shall be known and designated as the ``Timothy C. McCaghren
Customs Administrative Building''.
SEC. 3. REFERENCES.
Any references in a law, map, regulation, document, paper, or other
record of the United States to the building referred to in section 1
shall be deemed to be a reference to the ``Timothy C. McCaghren Customs
Amend the title so as to read:
A bill to designate the United States Customs
Administrative Building at the Ysleta/Zaragosa Port of Entry
located at 797 South Zaragosa Road in El Paso, Texas, as the
``Timothy C. McCaghren Customs Administrative Building''.
Customs Inspector Timothy C. McCaghren was one of the top
narcotics interdiction officers at the Ysleta Port of Entry, in
El Paso, Texas. On February 19, 1990, Officer McCaghren
attempted to stop a van at the port. The driver of the van
accelerated and ran the port, dragging Officer McCaghren until
he was flung from the vehicle. Officer McCaghren died the
following day from head injuries sustained in the incident.
A devoted father and husband, with every seizure he made,
Officer McCaghren was known to comment ``That's one load that
won't reach my kids.''
Customs inspectors are often the first line of defense
against terrorists and illegal drug smuggling operations. Many
inspectors carry firearms and face a constant threat of bodily
injury and death. H.R. 2415 is a fitting tribute and memorial
for both Officer McCaghren and the other fine officers who
daily face the perils involved with customs operations.
