Arizona Governor Katie Hobbs recently toured the Tucson Sector border with Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

This is Governor Hobbs’ third visit to the border in her first 100 days in office.

Her visit comes as the state prepares for the end of title 42.

Yuma border crossings have been down by more than 50 percent in 2023, and March numbers continue to be low according to Yuma’s sector Chief.

However, local lawmakers are concerned with the way asylum seekers are being processed and have asked Governor Hobbs to pass along a message to Secretary Mayorkas.

The Secretary’s plan is to try and stop migrants from showing up at the border by applying for asylum from a government app.

Meanwhile, Governor Hobbs has called for partnership between State, local, tribal, and federal governments and stakeholders to solve the issues at the border.

The Tucson sector is currently seeing about 20,000 apprehensions every month, and numbers across the entire border are expected to go up when title 42 ends on May 11th.
