The Impact of US Customs and Border Patrol Policies on the Michigan Economy

January 2019 - April 2019


This project centered on quantifying the economic impact of USCBP policies regarding containerized shipping with the intent of showing the adverse effects of limiting such cargo from entry to The Port of Monroe. Impact was analyzed in terms of direct partners, regional stakeholders, and the overall state economy.

Students worked with P3E Director and Port of Monroe Port Director to identify impacts of new USCBP policy and draft recommendations based on research results.
