“Take Our Border Back” convoy holds rally in Yuma

YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - A nationwide convoy protesting illegal immigration made a stop in Yuma Saturday afternoon.

The "Take Our Border Back" convoy gathered at Britain Farms around noon to hold a rally expressing their disapproval of the Biden administration's immigration policies.

Saturday's rally is one of several stops across the United States, including the border communities of San Ysidro, California and Eagle Pass, Texas.

"What we decided to do was rally everybody in fellowship to come down and be here in Yuma and San Ysidro for two hours this morning and Texas for a long overnight rally and just to let people know that the first amendment exists. We can use our voices peacefully and lawfully."

These protesters are hoping to send a clear message: Action needs to be taken at the border.

"We Americans are just standing up and saying, 'Border Patrol, do your job. Administration, do your job,'" said Lewis Herms, convoy participant.

The Yuma County Sheriff's Office (YCSO) and the Yuma Police Department (YPD) said they are aware the convoy group will be making a stop in Yuma.

According to YCSO, organizers of the convoy group met with local law enforcement agencies to try to minimize the impact on the community and have said their rally will be peaceful.
