SAN DIEGO — U.S. Customs and Border Protection said a “large-scale operational readiness exercise” could cause minimal processing delays at the Otay Mesa Port of Entry Saturday morning.

The exercise is planned to begin at 6 a.m. and last 10 minutes.

“CBP is continually assessing the capabilities of our facilities and has been making — and will continue to make — necessary preparations,” the federal law enforcement agency said in a statement. “Preparations include participating in operational readiness exercises and the mobilization of resources, as needed, to ensure the facilitation of lawful trade and travel.”
