Senators presented Casa Alitas’ staff and volunteers with a Congressional statement for the record thanking them for their role in helping migrants 

TUCSON – Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema and Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) toured the Casa Alitas Welcome Center in Tucson to discuss the current migrant crisis, the challenges facing Arizona communities, and non-governmental organizations’ role providing assistance to migrants.
“We appreciate Casa Alitas’ staff and volunteers’ work on the front lines managing the crisis at the border and helping both our communities and migrants,” said Sinema.
Sinema and Cornyn also met with Tucson’s Customs and Border Protection (CBP) leadership about the ongoing migrant crisis and the agency’s efforts to keep Arizona safe and secure.
Sinema and Cornyn presented Casa Alitas’ volunteers with a Congressional Record statement honoring their role in providing shelter, food, health care, and assistance to migrants. Casa Alitas is a non-governmental organization that provides shelter for families awaiting transportation and sponsor placements in the United States.
Sinema and Cornyn recently introduced the Bipartisan Border Solutions Act. Their bill improves the federal government’s response to the border crisis, reduces the impact on local border communities, and ensures migrants are treated fairly and humanely.
