Old rivals team up to question U.S. Border Patrol

One of the most contentious senate races in recent history was the 2018 Arizona contest between then-Reps. Martha McSally (R) and Kyrsten Sinema (D), where the two women pulled out all the stops to win.

The race was ugly.

McSally accused Sinema (pictured) of advocating “treason” when she said she didn’t care if Americans joined the Taliban to fight against us, adding that Sinema all-but condoned the action by saying, “Fine. I don’t care if you want to do that, go ahead.”

Sinema defeated McSally, but McSally wound up going to the senate anyways after being appointed by Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) appointed her to fill the late Sen. John McCain’s term.

Now Sinema and McSally are working together by penning a letter to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency (CBP) questioning their decision to temporarily remove officers from Arizona’s ports of entry.

According to the two senators, the removal of the border patrol agents compromises trade and security along the Arizona border.

“We understand the challenges that CBP faces with the recent influx of migrants to our border, and we both look forward to working with you to improve border security,” the Senators wrote. “However, reducing port staffing harms security and our economy, and different options must be explored.”
