Congress Border Tour

January 28th, 2021

Congress members tour the Arizona/Mexico border

On January 28, 2021, the Pima NRCD hosted a dinner and tour of the new wall construction near Nogales, AZ for eight members of Congress who visited the border on a three-day west-to-east tour. The previous day, the  Representatives saw the border at Sasabe. The next day, they visited the wall in Cochise County. Also on the tour were journalists including Rachel del Guidice and Chris DiSimone. Many of the attendees  posted tweets about what they saw and learned, as copied below.

We deeply appreciate these members of Congress and interested members of the media taking the time to travel to the border, see the wall and the unfinished construction first-hand, and listening to the ranchers, sheriffs and Border Patrol.
