Customs and Border Protection puts 28-year agency veteran Donald Kusser in charge of the nation’s second-largest airport.
Customs and Border Protection has sworn in Donald R. Kusser this week as its port director for Los Angeles International Airport.
CBP at LAX oversees an expansive international passenger, air cargo, express, international mail and agricultural compliance operation.
Kusser also is in charge of CBP activities of nearby airports, including John Wayne Airport in Orange County, Ontario, Palm Springs, San Bernardino, Victorville and Van Nuys user fee and international air cargo operations.
Kusser previously served as CBP’s assistant port director for tactical operations at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach.
He is no stranger to LAX’s airport operations, having served as CBP’s assistant port director for passenger operations from 2011 to 2016. Kusser joined the agency in 1991.
