WASHINGTON, D.C. (WJHL) — U.S. Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R- Tenn.) announced she will visit the U.S./Mexico border on Sunday.

“President Joe Biden’s open border agenda has created a crisis at our southern border,” Blackburn said. “Now, the Biden administration is censoring what Border Patrol agents can say and hiding the truth from the American people.

“I am going to the border to get the facts and see the crisis firsthand.”

Two different Arizona county sheriffs will accompany Blackburn on her visit, including Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb and Cochise County Sheriff Mark J. Dannels.

Pinal County is 60 miles north of the U.S./Mexico border, and Cochise County is situated along the southern border.
