Senators received briefing from Customs and Border Protection leadership on ongoing challenges in Arizona
TUCSON – Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema and Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) toured Customs and Border Protection (CBP) facilities in Tucson and received a briefing from CBP leadership on the current migrant crisis and the agency’s efforts to keep Arizona safe and secure.
“Our tour and discussions allowed Senator Cornyn and I to see firsthand the need for meaningful steps from the federal government to address security and management challenges at the border. We’re working across party lines to ensure our border communities get critical support, all migrants are treated fairly and humanely, and Arizona families are kept safe and secure,” said Sinema, Chair of the Senate Border Management Subcommittee.
Sinema and Cornyn toured the Tucson Soft-Sided Facility—recently built to serve as a larger processing center for migrants taken into CBP custody—and CBP’s Arizona’s Air Coordination Center, where they received a briefing from CBP leaders on the current migrant crisis and the agency’s efforts to keep Arizona safe and secure.
