Vice President Mike Pence to visit Nogales

Vice President Mike Pence met with ICE and CBP officials earlier this month.

PHOENIX – Vice President Mike Pence will tour the Border Patrol station in Nogales on Thursday. Pence is expected to meet with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials and tour the fence along the border.

Governor Doug Ducey, who has focused much of his efforts on increasing trade with Mexico, is expected to join Pence.

Due to the humanitarian crisis along the southwest border created by a surge of illegal entries, CBP officers have been pulled from duty at the ports of entry. On Tuesday, CBP reported that ports of entry in California and Arizona have closed some commercial lanes and “those who cross the Southwest border should expect these delays to worsen as more resources are devoted to the humanitarian crisis.”

The Nogales Border Patrol Station is the second largest Border Patrol station in the United States.

According to CBP, in March 2019, “92,607 people were apprehended between ports of entry on the Southwest Border, compared with 66,884 in the month of February and 47,984 in January. In FY18, a total of 396,579 individuals were apprehended between ports of entry on the Southwest Border.”

  1. For what it’s worth, a couple of days ago Glenn Beck made a chalkboard presentation explaining the Soros & cohorts financing of the caravans, for the express purpose of overloading the US system to bring down this country in the same manner that Soros & cohorts have brought about in the EU. Unless Pres. Trump realizes that the globalists who are led by Soros are doing this, arrests them, charges them with conspiring to overthrow this country, confiscates all of their assets, tries them, convicts them, and sentences them to life in prison, these United States of America will collapse, becoming another slave state of the one world government. Usually, Beck’s chalkboard presentations don’t hold my interest, but this one makes clear exactly what is occurring at our southern border, who is financing it, and their ultimate objective.
