SECTION 1. SHORT TITLES.

SEC. 2. MINIMUM U.S. CUSTOMS AND BORDER PROTECTION STAFFING ALONG THE 
              NORTHERN BORDER.

    (a) In General.--Beginning on the date of the enactment of this 
Act, the Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection shall 
ensure that not fewer than the maximum number of U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection officers deployed along the international border 
between the United States and Canada (referred to in this Act as the 
``northern border'') at any time between January 1, 2016 and the date
