San Diego, CA – Yesterday, U.S. Representative Young Kim (CA-40) visited USBP San Diego Sector Headquarters to hear on the ground updates from Chief Patricia McGurk-Daniel and her team and tour different areas of the California border.

Rep. Kim toured USBP Imperial Beach Station’s operations at Border Field State Park, border infrastructure projects at the Tijuana River Channel, and the USBP San Diego Sector Soft-Sided Facility. Photos courtesy of the Office of Congresswoman Kim are available here.

“CBP San Diego Sector, just two hours away from the communities I represent, is the busiest CBP sector by square mile and has become the epicenter of the Southern border crisis,” said Rep. Young Kim. “Seeing the border crisis firsthand allows me to better do my job in Congress, work on border security solutions, and help our border patrol receive the support they deserve. I appreciate Chief McGurk-Daniel and the USBP San Diego Sector team for providing me with a tour of their operations and showing me the challenges they face. I look forward to continuing my conversations with the USBP San Diego Sector team and educating my colleagues so we can work on bipartisan policies that will make an impact on the ground to improve the situation at our Southern border and protect our national security.”

This is Rep. Kim’s sixth visit to the U.S.-Mexico border during her time in Congress. She’s worked to secure the border by:

  • Leading H.R. 3508, the Comprehensive Southern Border Strategy Act, a bipartisan bill to ensure the Department of Homeland Security creates a comprehensive Southern border strategy;
  • Urging Secretary Mayorkas to use all available border security equipment in the federal government’s possession following reports that equipment was being stored at the taxpayer’s expense;
  • Supporting H.R. 2 to take concrete steps to secure the border and combat illegal immigration;
  • Helping introduce the Stop Fentanyl Money Laundering Act to help find improvements law enforcement may need to combat fentanyl trafficking; and,
  • Demanding the Biden administration not sideline human rights abuses as a bargaining chip to meet with Beijing officials regarding fentanyl.
