Apr 4, 2019

WASHINGTON – Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema today spoke at the Senate Homeland Security Committee hearing on migration at the southern border. Sinema discussed the need to secure the border to ensure Arizona families are safe, while treating migrants seeking asylum humanely.
“Our nation faces a critical situation along our southwest border with serious security, economic, and humanitarian consequences for Arizona. I remain committed to finding bipartisan solutions that keep Arizona families and communities safe and treat migrants humanely,” said Sinema.
Earlier this week, Sinema wrote to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency raising concerns over the agency’s decision to remove officers from Arizona’s ports of entry. Sinema also wrote to the Department of Homeland Security calling for additional resources and support to be sent to the Arizona border.
