a Althought there are eight U.S.-Mexico Ports of Entry for rail, four are in Texas where train crews are exchanged at the border, resulting in no new entry of persons into the United States. Therefore, no persons are recorded as entering the U.S. by train at Texas Ports of Entry. There is no regularly scheduled rail passenger service across the border.
