About Andrade Border Crossing
The Andrade Border Crossing (a.k.a. Garita Los Algodones)is one three ports of entry between The United States and Mexico in the Mexicali–Imperial Valley metropolitan region. The border crossing is located between the town of Andrade, California and Los Algodones, Baja California, in the border corner between Imperial County, Yuma County and Mexicali Municipality. It is a minor port in comparison to the larger Calexico Port of Entry and East Calexico Port of Entry. This is attributed in part to the fact that reaching the border crossing requires driving on, in contrast to wide interstates, narrow desert roads. The Andrade-Los Algodones port is also Mexico's northernmost port of entry.
The port ranked 11th for pedestrian crossings in 2010, with more than one million people processed by the United States Border Patrol.
