Yuma Sector Border Security

Arizona’s senators are among eight in Washington working on immigration reform, but their plans are contingent on the security of the U.S.-Mexico border.  This week on Arizona Edition, we explore the work of border patrol agents along the 126 miles of the Yuma Sector.  We’ll check out border fences, visit a remote forward base and talk about the challenges facing Yuma Sector agents with Chief Steven Martin. We’ll also talk with Senator Jeff Flake for the latest on his view on why border security should be tied to immigration reform.

An up-close look at the job of Border Patrol Agents in the Yuma Sector.
