The Tuscon Sector is one of the busiest border sectors in the U.S. for migrant encounters
WASHINGTON (KYMA, KECY) - U.S. Senator Kyrsten Sinema (I-Arizona) chaired a Government Operations and Border Management Subcommittee hearing to discuss border activity after the lifting of Title 42.
They learned how the changes are affecting border communities like ours and what federal agencies are doing to keep the border safe.
“Congress needs to understand this process in order to modernize our border management system and keep Arizona families safe and secure. My border and immigration proposal with Senator Tillis includes several important improvements to this process to ensure our border is secure and that migrants are treated fairly and humanely,” said Senator Sinema.
Senator Sinema hopes this update will also help treat migrants more fairly.
She also questioned witnesses at the hearing about how migrant arrival processing has changed since Title 42 ended and how the changes affect the border management system.
Senator Sinema said she intends to use the insights gathered at the hearing to continue to help come up with solutions for the border system, keep families safe, and provide lasting relief to border communities.
