YUMA, AZ – Two Northland congressmen visited the U-S-Mexico border this week bringing awareness to their party’s case for increased border security.

Escorted by U-S Customs and Border Protection Agents, Republican Representatives Sean Duffy of Hayward and Pete Stauber of Hermantown shared videos and pictures on Twitter from their visit to Arizona.

The pair took to the air and ground to get a first-hand look at what the border patrol deals with on a daily basis.

“Touring the southern border was a chance for me to cut through the noise and speak with the men and woman who patrol our border daily,” Rep. Stauber said in a statement. “I am incredibly thankful for all the agents and officials who work around the clock to protect the American people. Witnessing their day-to-day work only further solidified my view that Congress must quickly provide them with the technology, infrastructure, and personnel necessary to completely secure the border and prevent illicit drugs, human traffickers, and illegal immigrants from entering our country.”

In February, President Trump declared a national emergency at the border in an effort to fund his long-promised border wall.
