Congressman Paul Gosar and others on his team observe a young boy and woman from Honduras enter the U.S. illegally after crossing the Colorado River below Morelos Dam early Tuesday morning.

U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar met with Yuma Sector Border Patrol officials and toured the border in Yuma on Tuesday. 

 

Congressman Gosar has been critical of what he says is a border crisis of rising migrant apprehensions he blames on President Joe Biden rolling back border policies of the previous administration. 

 

“What we’re here to do is see firsthand in regards to the crisis at the border," Gosar told KAWC. "Yuma’s out here on its own. They’re being overrun by immigrants coming into this country illegally and we wanted to see the resources, see what’s transpiring at the local level and what can we do to help.” 

 

Gosar visited an area near the border fence near Los Algodones, Mexico. He has invited President Biden to visit the border in Yuma. 

While in Yuma, Gosar also visited with Yuma Sector Chief Patrol Agent Chris Clem.
