YUMA : Recibe a Trump......quien luego se reune con la Border Patrol

YUMA, Ariz. - President Trump arrived a short time before 2 p.m. on Tuesday. Hundreds of people gathered at the Yuma County Fairgrounds to watch Air Force One arrive at the Marine Corps Air Station in Yuma. Protesters and supporters of the President stood shoulder-to-shoulder while waiting for Mr. Trump to arrive. 12:09 p.m. - President Trump will meet U.S. Customs and Border Protection personnel and the state-of-the-art equipment used to secure our border. He will also receive a briefing on Department of Homeland Security on the southern border to prevent illegal entry into the country. Illegal border crossings in the Yuma Sector have declined by 70 percent from 2006 when it built more than 50 miles of border wall.

 To jump start the construction of the border wall Trump proposed, Trump ordered DHS to use $20 million of unspent appropriations in its account for border security, fencing, and infrastructure. Trump worked with Congress to pass border wall funding and the House of Representatives passed $1.6 billion to fund 28 miles of new border wall and 46 miles of new and secondary fencing. 

President Trump has implemented tough immigration policies that have reduced illegal border crossings over the southwest border by 47 percent compared to the same period last year. President Trump is also working with Congress to pass new laws to secure the border, strengthen immigration enforcement, and increase penalties. 9:29 a.m. - The White House has confirmed that President Trump will be meeting with Border Patrol officials in Yuma before heading to Phoenix. Trump will be taking a look at border patrol equipment and meeting with Marines at Marine Corps Air Station Yuma.

 He is expected to head to U.S. Border Patrol Yuma Sector shortly after he arrived at MCAS Yuma. We are expecting him to arrive shortly before 2 p.m. Trump will be taking a look at how border security is handled in our area. He will also take a look at what Border Patrol and Customs and Border Protection needs to keep us safe at the border.
