CBP Commissioner, First Lady Visit Arizona in Same Week

Nancy Montoya reports on the purpose of both trips.

This week first lady Melania Trump made stops in Tucson and Phoenix where she met with Customs and Border Protection officials and toured facilities holding migrant children who entered the country illegally.

CBP Commissioner Kevin McAleenan was present when the first lady was in Tucson. A day earlier he toured the Mariposa Land Port of Entry in Nogales, one of the busiest in the country. Nancy Montoya joined the commissioner on his tour where he and other Customs officials spoke about efforts to address staffing shortages at Arizona's ports.
