Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D) took a trip to visit the Yuma Border Patrol Station to meet with agents as she continues to tackle immigration reform and growing issues with illegal immigration.

In meeting with the border patrol agents, she discussed the challenges that they face regarding securing the border, ensuring that there is fair and humane treatment of migrants and that they are quickly processing migrants that are seeking asylum.

In a statement, Sinema, a member of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, commented that “we must put the politics aside to address the challenges along our southern border.”
