ANSWER: 

U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) indicates that a Mexican truck driver whose B-1 visa has been cancelled by CBP for a point-to-point violation will need to discuss the issue of the cancellation with the U.S. Consulate in Mexico. If the truck driver in question is able to convince the Consular Officer that the cancellation was done in error or was otherwise not required, then the Consulate will issue the truck driver a new B-1 visa that includes an annotation stating that the truck driver has been advised of U.S. laws and regulations regarding Cabotage. Most if not all of the point-to-point cancellations are processed by Border Patrol, and there is no appeal process in place for Border Patrol cancellations. The Special Cases Office at the San Ysidro Port of Entry will only field inquiries regarding cancellations that were processed at the CBP ports of entry.
